How is this calculated?
Wellington School in Ayr is a co-educational independent school for pupils aged 3 to 18 years of age. The school has a rich history and was originally founded in 1836 as a school exclusively for girls. The school remained a single sex establishment right up until 1994 when the introduction of boys was established. Since the school has become a co-educational establishment there have been several developments and changes. Some of the most notable includes the removal of boarding facilities to become a day only school.

In 1996 Wellington merged with Drumley House, a preparatory school, to create a new larger institution which to this day remains the only independent school in Ayr.

The school has a high focus on academic achievement and pupils are strongly encouraged to succeed in every part of school life. This includes coursework, sport, drama, music and in personal development too. As part of the Erasmus programme, Wellington School has a number of international pupils as well and has been awarded international school status by the British Council. Other awards include the Eco-Schools Green Flag for their work in reducing environmental impact and promoting awareness of conservation.
