Wells Shortlisted for Co-Ed School of the Year

After being crowned “Performing Arts School of the Year” at last year’s Independent School of the Year awards, we are thrilled that this year we’ve been shortlisted for “Co-Ed School of the Year”. A fitting tribute to our incredible staff and pupils, who have been truly amazing in such a difficult year! We’ll find out in October if we’ve won!

Head Master, Alastair Tighe said, “On the penultimate day of an enormously busy term, and an extraordinary year, it’s so wonderful to hear that we have been shortlisted for this prestigious award.

Having been crowned Performing Arts School of the Year in 2020, it’s truly wonderful to follow this up with being shortlisted for Co-Ed School of the Year, an award that recognises not only our exceptional performing arts but also everything else that we do, including our academic provision, sport, wider co-curricular offering and pastoral care.

This shortlisting is above all a great tribute to our staff, who have not only worked phenomenally hard all year, but have been extraordinarily imaginative and creative in devising an astonishing range of opportunities for our pupils.

I’m so proud of everything that the whole community – pupils, staff and parents – have achieved, and it’s wonderful for our collective efforts to be recognised by being shortlisted for this award.
