Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision as a Parent to make and we want to be able to help make this a straightforward process for you.

As Wellow is in the Mountbatten School catchment area, and Wellow School is a ‘feeder’ school, most of our children transition there for secondary education. The Mountbatten School website can be accessed here.
