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 at Wellington’ (WOW) campaign 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.

WIDENING OPPORTUNITIES AT WELLINGTON

WOW!

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

Our WOW Scholarship Award Programme sets out to offer the life changing opportunity that a Wellington education provides to many more young people with talent and ambition who simply cannot afford the fees.

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.

Strictly for Grace

6:45 pm to Midnight, Dining Hall

Every year in the UK 20,000 women are diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. This is 54 women a day and 21 of these women will die.

GRACE supports women with gynaecological cancers by raising awareness, funding research and providing local hospitals with vital equipment. In order to help raise money for this incredible charity, former staff head of dance, Pandy Dean will be hosting an evening of glitz, glamour and ballroom dancing as local volunteers, and a few from our very own Wellington College staff take to the dance floor for a Strictly Come Dancing extravaganza!

There will be fizz on arrival, followed by a sit-down two course meal. The dancing competition will take place after the meal, and once the winning couple have been announced, all are invited to dance the night away with our 13-piece band!

There will be a cash bar on site. Tickets cost £100 per person. All profits go to the charity GRACE. Tickets include glass of fizz, 2-course meal, half a bottle of wine and of course live entertainment!

Career Opportunity Group: Finance

Formally launched in 2014, Career Opportunity Groups were set up to provide support and networking opportunities for OW’s (young and old) in whatever their chosen career. There are currently over twenty different career groups.  

We are thrilled to be involving more from the Wellington Community and invite parents to come along to these career networking events. This drinks reception is a gathering of all from the Community in fields related to Finance. Our sixth form students who attend these events find them invaluable, and hope all from our Community who are interested in or working in the field of Finance will join us.
