Wells Cathedral School

2425.jpg

One of the oldest schools in Europe (founded AD909), Wells offers boys and girls aged 3-18 a modern education set within a beautiful historical backdrop. We’re located in the heart of Wells, the smallest city set in England’s countryside, but with easy access to Bath and Bristol and its international airport - and just over two hours from London Heathrow airport.

We are the only proper school that provides an internationally-renowned specialist music scheme recognised by the government. We have a proven record in academic excellence and provide a range of opportunities: specialist mathematics, 40+ co-curricular activities, a strong creative arts programme, competitive/non-competitive sports, and a full choral tradition with Wells Cathedral.

We encourage everyone to be what they are, ‘esto quod es,’ which (along with our emphasis on pastoral care) allows a broad variety of pupils to thrive here. We acknowledge excellence with scholarships.

Wells has an indescribable, magical atmosphere - you have to ‘See it to believe it!’
