We know that children start school with sparkling imaginations and a willingness to take risks with how they think. We embrace this everyday through our teaching, creative learning and stimulating curriculum that inspires, excites and enables a ‘could be’ attitude. By doing this, we are able to nurture their fertile minds and celebrate each child’s ‘bright spark’ that makes them a unique individual.
We’d be delighted to invite you for a visit so you can see for yourself what makes Wells such a special place, or to arrange an online chat if you prefer. Please do contact our admissions team who would be happy to make the arrangements and answer any questions you might have. In the meantime, our Virtual Tour below, as well as our website content, will give you a good flavour of life here at Wells.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions; we are always happy to help and look forward to hearing from you.
We aim to provide all children with a family environment within a kind and caring community where they can be happy, healthy and, most importantly, who they are. We ensure that they have a sense of belonging and are contented, balanced and confident individuals who have the necessary tools to live safe, joyful and fulfilling lives.
Education at its best is a deep act of care. If we care, then we will notice. If we notice, then we will act on a child’s behalf. If we act for each child, then they will grow best, will achieve best and will become their best selves. To be known, to be noticed, to be valued and to be cared for are the essentials of a good childhood, and they are at the heart of everything we do.
When they leave our Prep School, our goal is to ensure that each of our children has a high level of spiritual awareness, emotional intelligence and self control and are also active and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to the school and the wider world.
We didn’t choose Wells specifically for its musical reputation but simply for the way the school made us feel from day one – it just felt right. We couldn’t be happier however to see how the academic curriculum is superbly enriched by the focus on performance the Wells environment offers our children. Continued opportunities to act, recite, perform or play an instrument to an audience of adults and peers has harnessed a confidence in our children I know will serve them well in adult life allowing them to be not just who they are but also who they could be!
