WELLINGTON School has been shortlisted for two of the most prestigious national awards.

The school is celebrating being shortlisted for the Independent Schools of the Year Awards in two categories, Independent Co-educational School of the Year, and Independent Prep School of the Year.

The awards are designed to give independent schools an opportunity to celebrate and showcase their extraordinary achievements, and 2024 has been no exception.

The innovative and life-affirming student experience that independent schools provide to their students is awe-inspiring and the stories told in the entries are both moving and humbling.

In this year of likely deep-seated political change, it is more important than ever that the valuable contribution made by the independent sector is recognised.

Reading through the 2024 entries, the judges were particularly struck by the extraordinary and compelling work that schools undertake in partnership with the maintenance sector throughout the UK.

Supporting the educational aspirations of young people from all backgrounds is at the heart of their mission.

These awards are added to the already burgeoning number of awards the school has won and been shortlisted for over the past year, and the school is delighted that its excellence across so many academic and co-curricular areas is being recognised on a national scale.
