Wellington College, the national monument to the Duke of Wellington, is a British co-educational independent school located in the Berkshire village of Crowthorne. The school’s aim is to make Wellington College one of Britain’s, and the world’s, leading and most inspiring co-educational schools for boarding and day pupils.

Wellington has approximately 950 pupils aged between 13 and 18. The Good Schools Guide called the school ‘a serious player in the field of education’.

Aim and Missions

Encourage and support all our pupils to:

  • develop their full potential academically, culturally, sportingly and spiritually
  • develop into open-hearted and open-minded young adults
  • question, to think and to work independently
  • respect the views and beliefs of everyone in our community and beyond
  • serve and support others at all times
  • be calm and purposeful in everything they do
  • help one another achieve the most from their school years
  • prepare themselves fully for life after school
  • become the person that they uniquely are rather than being influenced unduly by others
  • look after the body, emotions and mind through proper rest, relaxation and nourishment.

Message from the Headmaster:

‘I want Wellington to become one of the most respected and admired co-educational independent schools in the UK, not for its place in the rankings but because of the pioneering and transforming education it gives the girls and boys that come here.

‘Educating children is a great responsibility and privilege. If you are a parent of a child already at the school, thank you for entrusting us with that job. If you are considering sending your child to Wellington, please come and see the school, meet children and staff and talk to me about my vision for the College in the coming years.’ Dr Anthony Seldon
