At Wellfield we believe that every student should receive the same consideration that we would want for our own children. We want the very best for each and every one of them. In creating this ethos for individual success, we establish clear boundaries, high aspirations, creative solutions and the genuine enjoyment that comes from the joy of learning and the pride of achievement and success.
We are dedicated to the successful development of each individual child. We really know our students! Being a smaller than average community school means we get to know and understand far more about your children on a personal level. A welcoming smile on the gate and a personalised ‘Good morning’ allows the students to feel known and cared for as individuals, enabling them to settle into the Wellfield family faster. Building strong relationships, however, is not just about the students. At Wellfield we make it our business to get to know our parents very quickly as well, and they us. This is a real strength that helps to support your children throughout their years at secondary school.
