The College Shop, affectionately and traditionally known as “Grubbies”, opens six days a week during term time and caters for almost anything a Wellingtonian pupil might require during his or her time at the college, whether it’s College sports kit, uniform, House ties, toiletries or tuck. In addition, the College Shop serves our prep school, Eagle House School.

Most new pupils’ first experience of the College Shop is their initial ‘kit out’ before they embark on their educational career here: Eagle House pupils from ‘The Nest’ (nursery) through to Year 8, and Wellington third to fifth form pupils are kitted out with all their uniform and sportswear requirements, whilst all new sixth form students need only source college sportswear items from the shop.  Kit outs are strictly by appointment only which become bookable online after Easter here, with availability from the beginning of June through to the start of the new academic year, and additional late night opening on selected weekdays.

Once a Wellington pupil starts at the College, the College Shop becomes their first-stop-shop for all stationery, Wellington clothing and tuck to purchase on their accounts. At kit out two deposit accounts are set up for each pupil: one for tuck and the other for clothing, with non-consumable purchases only permitted on the latter. This way, parents are able to set individual spending limits for each account for their child(ren); as such account transfers are only permissible upon parental request. The deposit accounts can be recharged in person, by telephone or by using an online facility via the College shop website.
