Visiting Wellington

Opportunities to visit Wellington are plentiful but fill up quickly so book early in order to avoid disappointment.

The Admissions Department is always delighted to welcome visitors and prospective parents to the College, and there are a number of ways in which to organise a visit to Wellington. Slots fill up quickly, however, so parents are advised to book three to four months in advance to guarantee availability.

Visitors Days are the most popular way of visiting Wellington. These events take place on Saturday mornings, seven times a year, and provide an easy and effective way of conducting a first visit to the College. After refreshments at 10.30am, the Master addresses visitors from 11am until 12noon with help from a pupil panel and senior staff. There is then an opportunity to tour the campus with a current pupil before lunch is served in the Dining Hall at 1pm. Please click here ‘Book a Visitors Day’ to reserve a place. Upcoming Visitors Days:

  • Saturday 5th October – FULL
  • Saturday 16th November – FULL
  • Saturday 18th January
  • Saturday 29th February
  • Saturday 25th April

Master’s Receptions are smaller events aimed at those looking at 13+ entry.  They are organised six times a year on Saturday mornings and the events are hosted by the Master, and an informal Q&A is followed by a tour of the campus. Senior staff, HMs, and pupils are on hand to help answer questions. For more details about availability or booking, please contact the Admissions Office on 01344 444 013 or

It is also possible to arrange visits during the working week. These are primarily aimed at families who are unable to attend a Visitors Day or Master’s Reception and consist of a meeting with the Director of Admissions or other key member of staff as well as a tour of the campus with a L6th College Ambassador. Please contact the Admissions Office on 01344 444 013 or to arrange a visit.
