The role of the Wellington Community is to build a supportive life-long community. We have developed a global professional and social network, deliver a diverse programme of events and offer invaluable careers support, guidance and mentoring opportunities. We also restore, preserve and celebrate the ‘Wellington Collection’ of art and artefacts.

Another major part of our work is to raise funds for the Widening Opportunity programme to offer 100%+ bursaries – to ensure we continue to be able to offer places to more young people with talent and promise the amazing opportunities that a Wellington education provides.

Celebrating widening access and opportunity

Thank you to everyone for supporting our first ever Welly Giving Day which generated over £105,000 in 36 hours – a staggering result and shows what happens when the Wellington Community comes together!

WIDENING OPPORTUNITIES AT WELLINGTON

WOW!

Talent is spread evenly throughout society, but opportunity is not.

We want to do what we can to address this disparity and support access and opportunity for more young people in our community and beyond. Our College community is enriched by having a bright, ambitious, talented and inclusive student body.

OUR PROGRAMMES

Opportunities to get involved

We want every member of the Wellington Community to be able to enjoy and benefit from their association with the College and the Community. We have a number of exciting opportunities across our programmes for members of the Community to be part of.

OW Ice Skating

2.30 pm, Somerset House

Come and join us at what has been billed by the Evening Standard as ‘London’s favourite outdoor ice rink’ and The Sunday Times as ‘The coolest rink of all’. The grand courtyard at Somerset House provides this 900-metre square ice rink with one of the most impressive skating backdrops in town. We will be returning to Somerset House for our annual Christmas gathering for those OWs and their families who are free to join us. The plan is to take over the ice for a festive skate followed by refreshments nearby.

Christian Prayer Group

8:00pm to 9:00pm; The Crypt Chapel

The Christian Prayer Group has been set up by a group of Wellington parents, from a variety of church backgrounds, who believe prayers have a positive impact on school life. It gives parents the opportunity to get together and pray for the school, its governors and staff, the pupils and their families. The group welcomes all parents and staff, and anyone else within the Wellington Community with an interest in praying blessings on the school community.

This group meets twice per term to pray, the meetings are very informal and take place on Sunday evenings, in the Crypt Chapel (down the steps beside the Chapel).

For more information or prayer requests please contact the Prayer group coordinators:

Gilly (gilly@thehafners.com) and Suzanne (suzanne@bishton.net), both Wellington parents.
