The Wellington Community exists to inspire and support the students as well as being a wonderful social and professional network for all its members.


Join us

We estimate that there are over 28,000 members within our Community across the world – the challenge is how do we bring this network together to support the students, as well as being a wonderful social and professional network for all its members? The answer is Wellington Connect – our own online platform that will provide opportunities for all members; re-connecting with former classmates, making new connections, finding jobs and signing up to a rich and varied programme of events and activities.


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.


Our vision is to harness the talents and expertise of the members of the Wellington College Community in order to support the College’s ambition to ‘provide an education that is unsurpassed anywhere in the world’. Through a wide range of social and professional activities we aim to nurture mutually beneficial life-long relationships with the College and with its members.


Membership of the Wellington Community includes the following: students, OWs, parents (past and present), staff (past and present), and individuals from our teaching partner schools. The community also includes our group international schools and the two academies in the UK. Most of the focus in the frst 18 months though, will be concentrated on setting up the programme for the immediate College Community.


To facilitate social, career and business opportunities for all members of the Wellington Community by delivering a vibrant events and communications programme. To provide life-long guidance and support for all OWs and opportunities for parents and OWs to engage in career mentoring, work experience, pro-bono skills/advice, and to encourage financial support for the College through an integrated development programme.
