TOP TIPS FOR PARENTS OF YEAR 7 PUPILS

Establish routines sooner rather than later:

BRINGING IN FORGOTTEN ITEMS

If your son/daughter has forgotten to bring in any item for example Food Tech ingredients, homework or PE kit, this is not a reason for them to be telephoning home to ask for them to be dropped off at Reception.

In line with other local schools, Wellington School aims to teach students to become responsible for themselves and to remember to bring in the items they need for the day. 

Please be aware that any items we receive during the day will not automatically be passed on to your son/daughter.

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC TUITION

At Wellington we have our own peripatetic service that currently offers tuition on the following instruments:  Piano/Keyboard, Voice, Violin, Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Saxophone, Cello, Drums, Acoustic and Electric Guitar.  All students receiving Instrumental Tuition must attend at least one musical extra-curricular activity per week.  This gives students the opportunity to make music as part of an ensemble, as well as consolidating the learning in the lesson.

The lessons are provided during the school day at a fixed cost of £36 a term based on a minimum of 10 lessons.  The music lessons are heavily subsidised by the school to the sum of over £100 per pupil, per instrument, per term.  Lessons will take place during the normal school day on a rota basis.

You will receive more information when your son/daughter starts school in September.
