Wells is one of the four Specialist Music Schools supported by the DfE and the only one to operate within the context of a conventional school. This remarkable innovation has contributed greatly to the special feel of Wells. Its pupils are a stimulating mix of talents and backgrounds – whether they are Specialist Musicians or have other academic, artistic or sporting aptitudes. The whole place has an innovative ‘can do’ attitude which is integral to the culture of the school.
The spirit of Wells is passion for learning and life. Pupils are enabled to strive for excellence by developing their academic, musical, sporting, artistic and personal potential individually and within the community.
The Wells experience is founded on the principle that people should feel that they can be themselves. Wells is a community where people are accepted for who they are. There is a refreshing sense of mutual respect between pupils whatever their interests and talents. Wells is a school where a wide variety of pupils can thrive: there is a place here for every sort of child. It can be no surprise, therefore, that Wells produces well-rounded adults, at ease with themselves.
Wells provides an inspiring education set in a musically-alive and beautiful environment as a brilliant foundation for life.
