Wrekin College Telford

Wrekin College is a co-educational Independent School for pupils aged 10 to 19 years. It was
founded in 1880 by Sir John Bayley and the school prospectus states that the school still works
to his original philosophy of providing individual attention to individual pupils. The school is
situated on the edge of Wellington, a market town in Shropshire. Although there are boundaries
to the school site, these are adjoined by neighbouring private properties and a public road runs
between the main school buildings. The six separate boarding houses are spread across the
school site and there is a mix of older and newer properties. There are currently three houses
accommodating boys, two accommodating girls and one co-educational house for years seven
and eight. Pastoral care and support are provided to boarders by all staff within the school.
Staff who do not have direct pastoral care responsibilities, contribute to the welfare provision
for boarders. The Deputy Head Pastoral is directly responsible to the Headmaster in relation
to all boarding provision within the school. There are currently 96 pupils boarding.


Pupils' health and welfare needs are being effectively promoted through professional services.
The school has a range of effective policies and procedures, and records are well maintained
by the school's house staff and health professionals. The staff know the school’s health
education policies and carry these out in their daily contact with pupils. Staff discuss personal,
health and social matters with all pupils. This helps pupils to gain a deeper awareness of healthy
living. Health needs which may impact on future outcomes for the pupils are identified at the
earliest opportunity and staff, in partnership with parents, actively seek out the services needed
to address these. For example, involvement of specialist health workers such as Child and
Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). This means pupils receive care that actively
promotes their well-being and health. Pupil’s medical needs are safely met. The school operates
a well-developed medication policy and practice guidance which specifically addresses the use
of non-prescribed medication. The school provides storage for such medication


Pupils are protected from bullying by others. The school is proactive in creating a culture that
does not tolerate bullying and provides good support to all pupils. Staff are quick to act in
relation to bullying behaviour. Pupils confirm that bullying is not an issue within the school
and that staff act on any information that bullying might be taking place. Therefore, pupil's
welfare is truly promoted. Pupil's welfare is protected because the school refers all possible

child protection matters to the appropriate social work team, if only for information. This
effective relationship between the local Safeguarding Children Board and the school ensures
the promotion of safety and well-being of all pupils. All staff receive child protection training
as part of their induction, although the current gap year student as yet to receive this as part
of their induction which compromises their ability to be effective.
