Foundationers

Heroum Filii - "The Children of Heroes". The founding mission of Wellington - to support the families of deceased servicemen by educating their offspring - is still alive today through the work of the Foundation.

In accordance with the College’s original foundation, which aimed to educate the orphan children of deceased military officers, Wellington continues to offer significant financial support to the families and children of deceased servicemen or servicewomen of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces irrespective of rank.

In recent years the Foundation has also been extended to include children of persons who, in the sole opinion of Governors, died in acts of selfless bravery in other fields of public service. Initial enquiries should be addressed to The Bursar, Wellington College, Crowthorne, Berkshire, RG45 7PU.
