From September 2017, we are seeking to appoint an experienced and forward-thinking Chaplain.
At Wellington College the fusion of originality, innovation and 150 years of tradition and history produces an education unlike any other, making it one of the most exciting schools in Britain. We seek to develop fully the ‘Wellington Identity’ in every child, encouraging them to be inspired, intellectual, independent, individual and inclusive. Regarded as one of the country’s leading boarding schools, the College currently has a roll of 1050 pupils, most of whom are boarders.
Wellington College is a Royal and Religious foundation and has a strong religious tradition and benefits from having its beautiful Chapel situated in the heart of the College.
The role of Chaplain is a key element in College life and the pastoral and spiritual care of the pupils and the wider Wellington Community is a priority. The Chaplain is responsible to the Master and there are close links to the Deputy Head responsible for Pastoral care.
Our ideal chaplain will be an ordained Priest of the Anglican Church with experience in Parish ministry and schools. The successful candidate will need a strong blend of pastoral and teaching skills, confident in using multimedia in the delivery of their message. Knowledge, skills or experience in the areas of youth ministry, teaching or education would be an advantage.
We welcome applications from all backgrounds.
