Children have been educated at Wells Cathedral School for over a thousand years, in what has to be one of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring locations. But while a sense of place provides something crucial as a child grows up and learns about themselves and the world in which they live, it is even more important that every child feels comfortable and secure enough to be able to discern, explore and test their own talents and interests. Grounded in a timeless tradition and ethos since its origins as a chorister school, yet adept enough to relish the challenges of the 21st century, Wells Cathedral School provides an encouraging and ambitious education for every child.
Whether in the Senior, Music, Junior or Nursery School, all children’s school days should be filled with opportunities to explore a range of interests and ideas; some will stick, some won’t, but all experiences are valuable and formative. At Wells, we give our pupils numerous opportunities to discover and nurture individual passions, in turn propelling them into a successful and fulfilling life beyond school. We are interested in the education of the whole child so that our pupils become thoughtful, confident, articulate, creative and caring individuals.
