Heritage


Restoring, conserving and celebrating our amazing heritage

At Wellington College we have a truly remarkable heritage that we are extremely proud of.

HERITAGE PROJECTS

Please support us

Heritage has been an area that has been given more resource to ensure that we are celebrating and preserving the amazing collection of artefacts, paintings and archives that we have. Last year we recruited a professional archivist who has undertaken a full audit of our artefacts, archives and paintings and we are now able to make some informed choices about how we make the most of what we have and how best to use the collection to engage all members of the College Community with our unique history and heritage.

Our heritage work is greatly enhanced by the Heritage Steering Group and we have established a ‘Friends of Wellington Heritage’ group to encourage small regular gifts and promote our heritage by hosting an annual Heritage Day at the College.
