Values and Vision

Wellingborough's motto is “Salus in Arduis”, meaning fulfilment through challenge. From its primary school to its sixth-form college, the educational aims are the same: to enrich cultural experiences, develop good behaviour, promote a close partnership between school and home, achieve academically and help students make the most of all the educational opportunities that the school provides. 

Its size helps promote a communal family feel, as does the ages it sees children through, many children staying for the whole 15 years of education. Although no longer a boarding school, it sees itself as having the atmosphere of one.

ISI

“Pupils’ personal development is excellent. They are engaging, self-assured, polite and enthusiastic about their experiences at school. The pupils’ spirituality has developed significantly and the chaplaincy makes a greater impact than at the time of the previous inspection. The quality of careers guidance has also improved. Pupils’ moral and social development remains outstanding."
