Orange girls are kind, inclusive and caring; they work very hard, play lots of music, sing, dance, act, paint, swim, ride, run, write - and sleep lots as a result!

Tom Wayman, Orange HM

The HM

Tom Wayman has been at Wellington for nine years, and part of the Orange, as either Tutor, House Parent and now Housemaster throughout. Having previously been Head of English at KCS Wimbledon and then Wellington, he is married to Jo, who was herself Housemistress of The Orange for six years. They have two children, Ben (17) and Anna (14). The Orange is very much their home and it is the aim that all girls should feel the same.

The House

The Orange was the first, purpose-built 13-18 girls House at Wellington College, and celebrates its 15th birthday in 2021. Its facilities are wonderful: light and spacious communal areas, a large, modern kitchen, a private back garden, huge conservatory, home cinema, rooms with wonderful views — there’s even a lift! Architecturally self-contained yet right in the middle of things, girls love the sense of being able to come ‘home’ and relax, while also having the supportive space to work individually or in groups.

Orange girls are kind, inclusive and caring; they work very hard, play lots of music, sing, dance, act, paint, swim, ride, run, write — and sleep lots as a result! Most importantly, they know that living communally teaches you about service to others and the importance of giving — giving time, giving space, giving support. They arrive as 13-year-old girls and leave as 18-year-old women, having been shaped by each other and the super team of tutors who, along with Jana the Matron and Maggie the Housekeeper, help make the Orange such a special place to learn and live.
