Wellingborough School is an independent, co-ed, selective, Christian-based though multi-faith all-through school, situated in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire with a broad geographical catchment area. Currently it provides 850 places for nursery, primary, secondary and sixth-form students aged 3-18.

The school was originally a Tudor Grammar School, founded as an all-boys boarding school in 1595. Originally situated in the centre of town, it completed the move to its 45-acre current location in 1881. Girls were admitted for the first time in 1970.

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.


"The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent."


In March 2022, Wellingborough School was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), the body approved by the Government for the inspection of independent schools. Inspections take place roughly every six years, and allow an opportunity for the school to be scrutinised in considerable depth. 

As most of you will not be au fait with the structure, scale or significance of an Inspection, it is worth me saying that it is a big deal! As well as surveys of students, staff and parents, the Inspectors sifted through our policies and examined our risk assessments before launching into a whole host of lesson and activity observations, student and staff interviews and work scrutinies, seeking to triangulate every bit of evidence they found before drawing their conclusions– conclusions that will form part of how the outside world views us until the next time a team turns up.
