Virtual Open Event
Welcome to Welling School
Welling School, located in the London Borough of Bexley, is an 11-18 mixed School and Specialist Arts College. We are Part of the TKAT family of schools.
Welcome from the Head Teacher
Education can transform people’s lives and at Welling School I am absolutely determined that the students who attend our school will be given the very best opportunities to excel. Our vision is to educate outward-looking learners who will thrive in their own lives and contribute to making the world a better place.
This means that we firmly believe that the purpose of education is twofold. We want all our learners to achieve academic success and have access to a varied co-curricular syllabus in order for them to complete their educational journey. Students can only achieve this if they feel happy and are provided with a caring environment in which the talents of different individuals are respected and encouraged to flourish. Our educational philosophy is focused around the values we want all our students to acquire before taking their place in the adult world. This is why we strive for:
Students who are ambitious
Students who are kind
Students who are active
I fully appreciate and understand that choosing the right school for your son or daughter is one of the most important decisions you will make but be assured that staff at Welling strive to provide an encompassing holistic approach to education.
With very best wishes.
Mr R Pett
