Looking to the Future

Like all independent school, Wellington School has adapted and evolved throughout its history to meet the needs of its pupils and to provide a first class environment in which to learn and grow up. In 2018 the school worked with specialists Austin-Smith: Lord to create a vision for the future and an exciting campus masterplan was published in late 2018. This plan provides the long term strategy that is needed to ensure the continued success and sustainability of this school.

As the school celebrates the Centenary of its move to Carleton Turrets, this is the perfect opportunity for us to look to the future with confidence and plan for the next 100 years.

How Can You Help?

Philanthropy is at the heart of most independent schools and Wellington is no exception. As part of our Centenary celebrations, we plan to build and strengthen the former pupil community and help those who have happy memories of their school days to reconnect with Wellington. If you are a former pupil and you have not recently heard from us, make sure you sign up to our Alumni Network to keep up to date with news and events, you can do by completing the form at the bottom of our Alumni Page. 

We are hugely grateful to all of the former pupils and members of the wider Wellington family who support the school in a variety of ways. In particular, I thank Mr Kenneth Montgomerie, who in 2022 made a very generous donation that helps to fund our Bursary programme by means of the special Ulick Montgomerie Bursary that has been set up in memory of his brother.

Anybody who is interested in supporting Wellington by making a one-off gift, through a future legacy or by making a monthly contribution is invited to contact the Headmaster. All enquiries will be treated with the utmost discretion. More information is available on our Supporting Wellington page.
