Here are some comments that parents have recently made about Wellhouse school:

My children are really happy at school.

This is a great school.

I don’t feel able to comment about bullying but I see that as a positive.

My child has improved in her school work since starting at Wellhouse.

The school has demonstrated that it acts with reason and is keen to put in the additional work to foster high achievers.

I thought that Wellhouse would be perfect for my child when I put her name down and 2 years on I still feel the same.

My child loves going to Wellhouse School and this makes me happy too.

I would, and have, highly recommended Wellhouse School. Thank you for helping my child love school and learning.

My child has only been at Wellhouse School for one year but as a family we have felt well supported. I feel more comfortable about approaching with concerns I have.
