What do we want Wellingtonians to be and to become?
We want Wellingtonians to have been genuinely excited by everything they have done during their time at the College. They will have developed a zest for life so that they, in turn, go into the world ready and able to inspire others.
This is the core pillar of the Wellington Identity.
Wellingtonians must move into the world with the ability to think critically and to engage in deep learning. They will be able to study beyond the bounds of any curriculum, to be inquisitive and ask questions of everything around them, and be imbued with a life-long love of learning.
Wellingtonians will develop the personal, cognitive, social and study skills to enable them to cope with the challenges of university and their lives beyond it. They will adapt, cope and thrive within an ever-changing world.
The aim of a Wellington education is to allow pupils to develop themselves fully in every sense, as we know that interested children become interesting adults.
The pastoral care and focus on pupil wellbeing at the College values each and every pupil as a unique individual, helping them discover and develop their talents, passions and interests.
Wellingtonians will leave the College with the moral values and social conscience to serve others and do good in life. This inclusivity includes a strong pride in coeducation, and a commitment to understanding and appreciating our place as global citizens.
