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.

COMMUNITY VIDEOS

Who we are and what we do

We have made a series of videos for you to watch so that you can find out all about the work and aims of the Community Office; we trust you enjoy watching them!

WIDENING OPPORTUNITY AT WELLINGTON

Prince Albert Scholarship Programme

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.

Welly Giving Week 2021

Celebrating widening access and opportunity

A huge thank you to everyone for supporting our 2021 Welly Giving Week – we raised an astonishing £1,021,000. Thanks to the incredible generosity from the Wellington parent community we are now able to offer 11 more brilliant young people a 6th form Prince Albert Scholarship, which is truly remarkable – a staggering result and shows what happens when the Wellington Community comes together! We can’t wait for Welly Giving Week 2022!

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.
