Ellesmere College Continues to Thrive









ELLESMERE COLLEGE started this academic year with 555 pupils, 61 more than September 2005 and 220 more than when the current Headmaster began to lead the School 10 years ago.


Brendan Wignall, Headmaster at Ellesmere College. is a man with a vision, focused on providing a broad education for pupils aged 8 to 18. Based on statistics held by the School for the last five years, since September 2006 there has been a significant rise in enquires from prospective parents. The number of family visits has also risen and it is anticipated that there will be a further rise in pupil starting in the 2007 academic year.


There are a number of reasons for this success.


In Lower School, years 4 to 8, class sizes are particularly small with just 12 pupils in Years 4 and 5, rising to 17 in Years 7 and 8.


At the senior end of the School, alongside a good choice of A Level subjects the introduction of the International Baccalaureate has encouraged more academically minded pupils to join the Sixth Form.


Paul Goodwin, Director of Admissions commented, 'Ellesmere College's approach to education is unique for a school. By using the principles and practices that underpin successful businesses we are a school that has leapt ahead of its local and national rivals. We have a flexible approach, caring for the needs of our pupils and their families, delivered in a professional manner.'
