Wellington College, one of Britain’s finest independent schools, is a wonderful place in which to prepare for exams.

All subjects are organised and taught by a team of highly qualified and experienced teachers, carefully selected from the very best schools in the country (including Wellington College). All are familiar with the demands made upon examination candidates.

“He thought it was excellent and has been recommending it to all his sceptical friends who can’t believe he enjoyed a week of maths!”

“She has returned home brimming with confidence from her improved knowledge and is really motivated to continue working through her exam revision… she kept texting me during the course breaks saying how brilliant the teaching was and how much she was learning.”

“This has probably been one of the best trips of my life and I would really like to thank all the staff who made my stay so enjoyable.”

“… had a very fulfilling week at Wellington, her marks doubled across the week and she feels better equipped to continue on with revision.”

“He thoroughly enjoyed his time in all subjects and said that all his teachers were so amazing and helpful… He has even said that he would return next year and the year after for A Level revision!”

” Really good – went through lots of exam papers, good resources, teacher really approachable – would definitely recommend.
