Wellington College is renowned as a crucible of educational debate and intellectual discovery, and this is, in no small part, due to the outstanding speakers who step through our gates on a weekly basis to offer talks, lectures and seminars on a wide range of topics to our pupils and, often, our parents too.
All Wellingtonians have the opportunity to hear leading voices and thought-leaders from the world of science, politics, business and education through our Inspire lecture series and Master’s Lectures, to which pupils and other members of the Wellington Community are welcome.
