The community beyond our gates is an integral part of the identity of Wellington School and we are deeply committed to supporting it to the very best of our ability.

Whether in the form of bursaries, sharing our facilities, community service or hosting joint learning and events, we seek to support families, schools and partners in many varied ways.

At the heart of all our partnerships lies an unshakable belief in the importance of building outstanding relationships and these relationships are based on values such as kindness, empathy, inclusivity, equality and community.

Financial Assistance

Wellington School is committed to providing financial assistance to enable families who wouldn’t normally be able to afford independent school fees to access a Wellington education. We have been fortunate to receive a number of bequests from benefactors which, combined with judicious financial management enables us to direct resources where they are most needed.

We are pleased to be able to offer a number of means-tested bursaries to assist families with fees. During the Covid pandemic, a specific Hardship Fund was established to assist families who have experienced financial difficulties during the pandemic.

On an average year over 200 pupils receive bursarial support, totalling over £800,000.
