How to visit us

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.

In order to reserve a place, please complete the Book a Visitors Day form, a link to which can be found at the bottom of this page under ‘Where Next?’

Master’s Lodge Receptions are smaller events, organised six times a year on Saturday mornings, and are usually favoured by families for a second visit.  These events are hosted by the Master, Julian Thomas, in his home where an informal Q&A is followed by a tour of the campus. Senior staff, HMs, and Third Form 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 individual visits during the working week. These slots are primarily aimed at families who are unable to attend a Visitors Day or Lodge 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 Lower Sixth College Ambassador. Please contact the Admissions Office on 01344 444 013 or to arrange a visit.
