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 fully-funded Prince Albert Foundation 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!


Prince Albert Foundation Bursaries

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.


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.

Virtual Workshop ‘Re-imagining your career post COVID-19’ by Bill Lawry


The pandemic has provided many of us with additional time at home, technology enabled working and an absence of the daily commute. Perhaps, you will also have had time to reflect on the fact that you no longer want to continue in your current role and/or current career path?

This session is aimed at anyone who wants to think more deeply about and plan for the career they really want to embark on, no matter if you are just starting out or have worked 30 years in the same role. It will help you to:


• Reflect on your ultimate career goals
• Identify your strengths and the environments in which you thrive
• Cultivate the brand you want in your current organisation and wider job market
• Plan and leverage the right relationships to ensure you get the career you want


Bill Lawry, Wellington parent and CEO of Ascend will very kindly share his expertise and facilitate this interactive and stimulating 60 minute virtual workshop. Ascend is an international consultancy that focuses on talent strategy, leadership development and enhancing organisational, team and individual performance (
