Community Action is a key component of the Wednesday programme at Wellington, involving experiential service to others. Third and Fifth Form students are heavily involved.

The aim of the Community Action programme is to ensure that all Wellingtonians have the opportunity to follow their individual passions, to see the impact they can have on society both now and into the future, and to be inspired to help others at all life stages. Students engage through a sense of individual wellbeing and inclusivity within different communities, and the benefits this can bring can be life-changing. Knowledge gained through these direct interactions with other communities can help with intellectual pursuits both in College and beyond as students’ understanding of our world and the difference they can make becomes more apparent.

Placements take many different forms and connect with various communities from working with the young, vulnerable or elderly (such as sport coaching, music to help dementia, craft activities, teaching language skills, foodbank), to working with animals or environmental projects (for example dog rescue, bird and bat boxes for the local community).
