Wells Cathedral School Reviews

Average Rating:

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Inspiring and friendly atmosphere”
AUTHOR:
"> Friendly atmosphere. Amazing all-round education. Lots of extracurricular fun.
“regulatory faliure, etc.”
AUTHOR:
"> Very poor management, disorganised on all fronts, fails, as Independent Schools' Inspectors Reports show, to adhere to full regulatory protocol on criminal checks before employing staff, has been fined for failures in health and safety as HSE website evidences, very uncaring and concerned only with image rather than real and appropriate interest in pupils, no meaningful individual, respectful contact with parents, waste of money. Admissions process very poor. Unless your child is super musical, avoid. Academically no great shakes.
