The Murray embodies the sense of inclusivity which is such a key part of the Wellington Identity.

The HM

Educated at Sevenoaks School, Oli Peat studied Modern Languages at the University of Exeter and obtained his teaching qualification from the University of Southampton. He joined Wellington in 2014 to teach Spanish and French, having spent time teaching in Spain, and was Assistant Housemaster of the Benson from 2014 to 2019. During his last two years in that role, Oli was also the College’s Senior Assistant Housemaster. Outside the classroom, he is involved with Wellington’s hockey programme and was Head of Sailing for three years. As a former chorister and choral scholar, he also lends support to the Chapel Choir from time to time. Beyond Wellington, Oli’s interests range from racket sports to cooking and wine, travelling (particularly to Spain and France), the theatre, and continuing to undertake singing engagements when time allows.

The House

The Murray can be found right at the heart of school over two floors of the historic main College buildings, and is therefore conveniently located close to the library, most classrooms, sports facilities and, arguably most importantly, the dining hall. Home to some 72 boys during term-time, the Murray is known for being a particularly friendly, diverse and supportive House, perhaps partly due to its rich tapestry of local families and UK-based boys, British expatriate families, and international boarders. We strive to foster an environment underpinned by honesty, kindness and hard-work where boys, both junior and senior, look out for each other and take genuine pride in the House as well as their own and each other’s achievements..
