School Heritage

Willington Independent Preparatory School was founded by the Hale sisters in 1885 and, from the very beginning, we have always had a focus on the individual.  Helping every boy to be successful on his own path through the crucial years at his first school has resulted in an intriguing array of former pupils.  From scholars to adventurers, entrepreneurs to politicians, the presence of such a history gives our boys a sense of ambition.  Our history tells a Willington boy that he too can become whatever he wants, for all our old boys were their age once.  Along with the memory of past pupils to motivate, our Honours Boards record pupils’ achievements back to the beginning of the school.  Our current pupils hope to emulate the success of our past pupils and see their name recorded for future generations to look up to.
