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!

WIDENING OPPORTUNITIES AT WELLINGTON

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.

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.

Upcoming Events

15 September 2020

Wellington Community Book Club

7:30-8:45pm

Come and join this fun and informal virtual group to discuss the chosen book with our wonderful head librarian, Lucy Atherton, and fellow members of the Wellington Community. Remember your glass of wine and nibbles!

At that first meeting after the summer break we will be discussing:

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts.  A huge book which I’m finding fascinating. I’m listening to the audiobook (25 hours to go – it started at around 43 hours I think!) and

Where the crawdads sing by Delia Owens. This seems to have been a hugely popular book this summer but don’t worry if you haven’t read this one as well, the main focus will be Shantaram.
