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 2020

Celebrating widening access and opportunity

A huge thank you to everyone for supporting our 2020 Welly Giving Week – we raised an amazing £250,000 for our Prince Albert Scholarship programme, as well as over 150 offers of volunteering support, whether that was offers of career mentoring or signing up to become a Prince Albert Ambassador – a staggering result and shows what happens when the Wellington Community comes together! We can’t wait for Welly Giving Week 2021!

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.

Virtual London Walking Tour – Discover Belgravia

7pm to 8pm

Join London Guide and former Wellington parent Rosalind Vincent for a virtual ‘stroll’ around Belgravia.  As one of the most elegant areas of London, it oozes wealth and has a fabulous list of colourful characters  who have made their mark.  Don’t be deceived by the calm exteriors – behind the doors lie stories of scandal and intrigue. All this will be revealed along with a good dose of  history combined with Rosalind’s love of homing in on the details that the passer-by normal misses.
