GCSE Results Received by Wellington School Students

21 Aug 2020

Wellington School students received their GCSE results today. In a rare social gathering, Year 11 met up (appropriately socially distanced) for the first time since March, to celebrate their results.

Headmaster Eugene du Toit commented, “We are proud of the achievements of our Year 11 students and commend them on their resilience during the summer term. They have faced remarkable challenges and shown great courage and tenacity while doing so; their conduct has been exemplary.”

This year group was extremely committed to all they did at school with significant success in sport, music, drama and the CCF.  Many of them have been at Wellington since Nursery and the School is very proud of all their contributions.

“As well as congratulating the pupils for their efforts, I am very grateful to my staff, across all departments, for their dedication during this uncertain time. The support that staff give throughout the year is immeasurable; not only in the classroom, but also in the pastoral and co-curricular aspects of school life.  I would also like to thank our parents whose support and encouragement during the past 5 months has been superb,” continues Mr du Toit.

Wellington School’s educational philosophy is founded on building outstanding relationship, the pursuit of excellence and a genuine love of learning. Staff have been working tirelessly to prepare for a safe and full return to lessons on Thursday 3rd September.

The School will continue to offer a full curriculum, a broad co-curricular programme and will also support those children unable to attend onsite lessons with comprehensive remote learning. Children’s wellbeing will be at the forefront of everyone’s mind and we will support them, and their parents, as they adjust to their new school routine.
