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. The College provides a world class and scholarly environment and we are looking for people of outstanding imagination, intellect and passion to join us as we aim to both develop the excellence of our own pupils and forge new directions in education.
