Each person's connection to Wellington is unique to them
Widening access and opportunity is in our DNA at Wellington
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. Another major part of our work is to raise funds for the Widening Opportunity programme to offer fully-funded Prince Albert Scholarships – 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.

We will take a virtual stroll along Whitehall to Parliament Square, hearing about a speculative developer, love affairs and political figures. Today, you may think of Whitehall as a place of government buildings (until covid-19) filled with civil servants, but join us to learn more about this street that has shaped our nation.
