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.

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 2022

Celebrating widening access and opportunity

Welly Giving Week is fast approaching (17th-22nd October 2022). This is an annual event that raises vital funds for our Prince Albert Foundation (PAF) Scholarship programme, our flagship initiative to widen access to the amazing opportunities that a Wellington education provides.

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.

London Walking Tour: The Grand Surrey Canal

London, meet at Surrey Quays on DLR at 11am.

Join Lou Cohen, a City of Westminster London walking tour guide to find out more about The Grand Surrey Canal.

The Grand Surrey Canal was an ambitious project to link the Thames to Croydon and Epsom and the south coast.  It joined the Thames at Greenland Dock, a much older ship dock than St Katharine’s and just along the river was the site of the Royal Navy Victualling Yard.  Step back in time with Lou Cohen to explore this old part of London to see the place where Raleigh laid his cloak for Queen Elizabeth I and how the area played its part in World War II.

Tickets cost £18 per person and includes the fully guided tour.
