We are the only independent school in Ayrshire and we pride ourselves on providing an exceptional all-round education. Excellent academic results are important, of course, and the achievements of Wellington pupils are rightly celebrated every year. More generally and equally importantly, Wellington pupils throw themselves into school life and simply “get involved”. Whether it be in the classroom, on the sports field or performing on stage, our pupils work hard, support one another and achieve more than they ever thought was possible.


Wellington offers a rich academic curriculum and most pupils study eight National 5 courses in S3 and S4, five Higher courses in S5 and a mix of Advanced Higher and Higher courses appropriate to the individual in S6. Almost all progress to a university or college of their choice and many achieve places on some of the most competitive courses in Scotland and in the wider United Kingdom. The programme of overseas exchanges and trips on offer is second to none, and Wellington is proud recently to have been granted “International School” status once again by the British Council.

The best way to find out more is to visit. You will be made very welcome and can experience the warmth and the vibrancy of the Wellington community for yourself.

I look forward to meeting you.
