OUR PHILANTHROPIC PROGRAMME

Through our Philanthropic programme we have been able to deliver a number of projects in recent years that have greatly enriched the life of the students and others in the wider community.

SUPPORT US

We are shaping the future

‘Inspire!’ focuses on key areas and aims to: develop our campus and deliver a truly dynamic and world-leading educational environment; widen opportunity and access through our scholarship programme – the WOW! campaign; and provide an enriched curriculum and platform for all round educational success and set our students up for life beyond Wellington.

We are indebted to those parents and OWs who have donated almost £5m to the recent building projects and £6m to the bursary programme over the last 4 years. Without this wonderful philanthropic support, these success stories would simply not have happened.
