Pastoral Care

We believe that the best schools are open to everyone regardless of money, faith, gender or ability. This works because we are able to offer provision that comprehends the needs of everyone. This web site uses the mechanism of scientific elements to show you how it is possible to find the things that support and inspire your child, including some of the less familiar areas of the curriculum. It will also show how other elements will ensure your child is in an environment where those alongside them with a different profile will be cared for and engaged.

We assume the core, and now Modern Foreign Languages, will be familiar to you. Our record of delivery in these subjects is very strong indeed.

There is a limit to how a prospectus can convey the passion we have for our school. I would always advise a visit. You would be very welcome and go away reassured and excited.

I hope we help you see why students and staff love coming here so much.


The school was established in Wallingford 350 years ago by the merchant tailor Walter Bigg who wanted to endow a school associated with the parish church of St Mary’s.

He was born and raised locally and went on to be elected Lord Mayor of London. Although he made good he never forgot his roots and was keen to help others. He left us a trust fund that still exists for the benefit of our young people. We hope to encourage a similar desire to serve the community in our current students.

We are proud to have maintained our links with the Merchant Taylors' Company in the City of London continuously since 1659.


WSA in the community

The school is keen to serve the town and surrounding villages. The mix of students is a wonderful one, with the vast majority being well-brought up and ambitious. We are one of the largest local organisations in the area and seek to engage with local community groups. The school accepts responsibility for holding young people to account for their conduct in the community and is keen to help with events both in the villages or Wallingford itself. We are involved with younger children in primary schools and those at the other end of their lives in care homes.

People attend our public performances for the quality of entertainment. Our productions and Spring Concert are part of the community’s calendar. Students are also invited to play at local functions, festivals and celebrations over the weekends.

The opinions of students are increasingly important to the direction of the school and each year they spend a significant sum of money. They are also involved in the development of teaching and learning. In return, students share responsibility for helping the school run smoothly. This can be as Prefects, School Officers, Student Ambassadors or on Reception Duty Parents and carers of pupils at the school are automatically members of the Wallingford School Association, or WSA, and anyone is welcome to join the committee. The main fundraising event is the Annual Quiz Night, but we also run a 200 Club, provide refreshments for the Christmas School Production and Spring Concert. Committee meetings are held 4-5 times each school year and the Headteacher, or a representative, is usually present and gives a report.

This is a cheerful and successful school. You are welcome to visit and explore those elements that interest you. Your child will leave Wallingford Qualified to make a difference in the world and be Able to recall very happy schooldays indeed.
