Wellington College is one of the UK’s — and indeed the world’s — great coeducational boarding and day schools. The College is set in 400 acres of beautiful parkland and is home to a blend of breathtaking original architecture and modern state-of-the-art facilities to provide the best possible educational environment for our pupils.
The school was founded in 1853 as the living memorial to the Duke of Wellington, described by Queen Victoria as “the greatest man this country has ever produced”.
A wonderful fusion of heritage and modernity characterises our educational philosophy. Our curriculum, facilities, and teaching methods are constantly adapting to the challenges of preparing young people for the ever-changing world of the 21st century. Wellington College is a school which is dynamic in every sense of the word, and yet all that we do is rooted firmly in our five College values — Kindness, Respect, Courage, Integrity and Responsibility — values which underpin every aspect of life here at Wellington.
The achievements of our pupils and staff, both inside and outside of the classroom, are remarkable: consistently stellar examination results at GCSE, A Level and the IB Diploma; an Arts programme, the breadth and quality of which would rival the West End or Broadway; an enviable reputation as one of the strongest schools for sport in the UK; and groundbreaking and sector-leading pastoral care, wellbeing and mental health provision. These are just some of the things that make a Wellington education not only outstanding, but also a way of life.
