Independent Learning


Equipping our students with real-life skills...

We want to equip our students with the skills to become independent learners and thinkers.

PROJECT COST: £1.5M

Programme Target: £1.5m

Being responsible for your own learning provides the platform for all-round educational success and sets the student up for life beyond Wellington. We are also developing a new lower years’ independent learning and leadership programme that in time will include extended residential activities overseas where a broad curriculum will be taught, integrated with key life and leadership skills.
