Visiting Wells

Wells Cathedral School is working hard to minimise the risk of Covid-19 to our community. As such, we are only permitting essential visits to our School. If you would like to request a visit, we would ask prospective parents to please contact our admissions team on 01749 834441 / [email protected]. Parents of boarders who wish to visit need to arrange this in advance by contacting their child’s Houseparent. For all other requests, please contact our Main Office on 01749 834200 or [email protected]

We realise that this approach may cause inconvenience and disappointment to all those who were hoping or had planned to visit us, but we ask that you please bear with us on this and appreciate that our priority is the safety and well being of our community.

If you are permitted an essential visit, please observe the guidelines detailed below.

1. Visitors must NOT visit us in the following circumstances:

  • If they have been advised by their GP or hospital clinician to either stay at home or leave their home only under limited constraints.
  • If they or any member of their household or support bubble have tested positive for COVID-19.
  • If they or any member of their household or support bubble are showing symptoms and are currently waiting for a test or for test results.
  • If they have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace and advised to self-isolate.
  • If they have recently entered the UK from another country and are required to follow the current quarantine guidelines in place.

2. Should you develop symptoms of Covid-19 whilst at Wells, please inform your host immediately and follow his or her advice.

3. If you develop symptoms within 14 days of visiting our School, please inform us as soon as possible by emailing us at [email protected].

4. Visitors will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of their visit while moving around the site. You will be able to remove it once you have arrived at your meeting location.
