Welcome to our Virtual Open Day

We know that there is no substitute for seeing the School for yourself, chatting to our students and staff and feeling the atmosphere and we are disappointed that we could not have as many visitors as usual on site this morning.

Instead, we have produced a film which we feel encapsulates the essence of Wellingborough School and information on taking those first steps from enquiry through to the admissions process.

We will happily organise for remote meetings via Microsoft Teams or Zoom to meet Mr Holman, Headmaster or Mrs Owen, Head of Prep at a later date.

Welcome from the headmaster

Dear Parents

I am delighted to welcome you to our Open Day, whether you are here in person or enjoying our virtual offering, and whether you are new to the School or have children moving to the next stage of their Wellingborough experience.

You will get to hear about our excellent pastoral system which runs throughout the School and which underpins much of what the pupils achieve. Ensuring that the boys and girls are happy gives them the basis from which they can flourish in a supportive environment to respond to a dynamic, challenging academic diet whilst also enjoying the opportunities that open up through our wide co-curricular programme.

However far through their education the children are, we are always looking to maximise the advantage they develop through being here. Our incredible staff ensure that the pupils develop the confidence and awareness to eventually leave us with a clear idea of what they want to do and equipped with the skills to achieve their dreams.

Whatever your route to us today, I hope that we are able to give you a
much deeper understanding of what Wellingborough has to offer. I look
forward to meeting you soon – be that virtually or in person.

Andrew Holman, Headmaster

Dear Parents

At Wellingborough School we provide children and young adults with a world of opportunity.

Our main points of entry are Nursery, Reception, Years 3, 7 & Sixth Form. We also welcome new joiners at all entry points throughout the School, adding to the richness of our community.

The School wishes for prospective parents and pupils to fully understand our environment and ethos before committing and we encourage you to get to know us as you make that important decision of where to send your child to school.

We understand that the Admissions process can seem daunting and joining a new School at any age is a big moment.

Our experienced Admissions Team is here to guide families through the entry process and make everything as clear and simple as possible. We like to get to know our prospective families and build a relationship that will ensure a smooth
