Wellington College

A progressive school at the forefront of educational innovation, Wellington College was transformed by visionary head Sir Anthony Seldon and is soaring once again with James Dahl in charge. With its constant buzz, forward-facing attitude and so much for the taking, its pupils are brilliantly prepared to cope with the pressures of the modern world. There’s a palpable culture of inclusivity and ‘go-getting’ – it’s cool to be busy, and to make the most of life here, children need to be driven and willing to get involved.

    Bursaries
    For children with exceptional talents whose families would not be able to afford the full Wellington fees, the school may offer awards from 10% to 100% of fees. An average year might see 20 pupils be admitted (at 13+ and 16+ entry only) with an average of award of 50% remission. Fee-assisted places are not always linked to scholarships but some are named, such as the Jimmy Higham Award (supporting a talented sportsman or sportswoman), the Seb Foundation Award (for talented rugby players) and the Sir Anthony Seldon Arts Award (for talented performers, musicians and artists).

    The Prince Albert Foundation is a scholarship programme aimed at widening participation to families who would not normally consider or be able to access independent education. Currently there are 10-15 fully funded Prince Albert Scholarships awarded each year and the school aims to increase this. Children who are eligible for Prince Albert Scholarships are those whose families are on national average income or below; there is often a further relevant need for boarding.
