We have a number of exciting opportunities across our programmes for members of the Community to be part of, and we hope you will be amazed just how vibrant your Wellington College community is!

EDUCATIONAL ENRICHMENT

We are sharing expertise

We want to mix your professional experience with the academic life of the students and look to our community to deliver masterclasses or lectures to enrich what happens in the classroom. We will set up programmes for skills for life, work placements, entrepreneurship, enterprise and much more, because we want our students to be inspired and, in turn, able to inspire others.

CAREERS

We are thinking differently

We want our students to benefit from the expertise of our global community. We will build a careers network of OWs, parents (both past and present) and strategic industry partners to help our students with careers advice, guidance, work placement opportunities and networking links – a truly inspirational platform which embraces both the practical and the innovative.

BUSINESS NETWORKING

We are creating opportunities

We will be building up a peer-to-peer professional network for OWs and parents, both past and present. We want to bring together industry sectors and disciplines and meet regularly to share ideas, make contacts, facilitate career development and create business opportunities for all members.

SOCIAL & CULTURAL

We are making life-long friendships

Theatre and gallery trips, wine tastings, informal drinks, reunions, overseas trips, and much much more. We are continuing to build up a vibrant events and communications programme for parents and OWs to enjoy, meet new people, make friends and have a lot of fun along the way.

PASTORAL

We are supporting you

We will be delivering a series of talks aimed at helping parents to understand the pastoral life of the college. These will cover a wide range of topics such as Digital Awareness and Safety, Independent Learning and Teenage Nutrition and Food at Wellington.

PHILANTHROPY

We are shaping the future

Through our Philanthropic Network we plan to develop our campus and deliver a truly dynamic and world-leading educational environment; widen opportunity and access through our bursary 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.

Upcoming Events

20 January 2019

Christian Prayer Group

8.00pm, The Crypt Chapel, Wellington college

The Christian Prayer Group has been set up by a group of Wellington parents, from a variety of church
backgrounds, who believe prayers have a positive impact on school life. It gives parents the opportunity to meet together and pray for the school, its governors and staff, the pupils and their families. The group welcomes all parents and staff, and anyone else within the Wellington Community with an interest in praying blessings on the school community.

This group meets twice per term to pray, the meetings are very informal and take place on Sunday evenings, in the Crypt Chapel (down the steps beside the Chapel).

To register or for more information or prayer requests please contact the Prayer group coordinators:
Gilly: gilly@thehafners.com and Suzanne: suzanne@bishton.net, both Wellington parents.

School of Rock – Wellington Community Theatre Trip

7.30pm, Gillian Lynne Theatre, London

The Wellington Community are pleased to announce our first parent theatre trip of the term to see the phenomenal School of Rock on the West End.

Based on the iconic, hit movie, this irresistible new musical follows Dewey Finn, a failed, wannabe rock star who decides to earn an extra bit of cash by posing as a supply teacher at a prestigious prep school. There he turns a class of straight –A pupils into a guitar-shredding, bass-slapping mind-blowing rock band. But can he get them to the Battle of the Bands without their parents and the school’s headmistress finding out?

Join us for what will be a hilarious night out with fellow members of the Wellington Community with our special group rate tickets only £32.50 per person!

Booking available soon, for more information please contact: community@wellingtoncollege.org.uk
