Take a Virtual Venue Tour Contact the Events Team

Originally the main classroom for the College when it opened in 1859, today Great School serves as a versatile events space, be it seminar, workshop, drinks reception or other hospitality occasion.

The venue retains the grandeur of the Victorian age, displaying artwork themed on the momentous Battle of Waterloo and the original cloak and sword that once belonged to the Duke of Wellington himself. Great School also serves as a memorial to those Wellingtonians who fell in service of their country in the two World Wars and whose names are displayed on the House Boards built into one of the interior walls.

Welcoming your guests as they pass under the clock tower through the College main archway entrance into the magnificent Front Quad, it is an arrival that is sure to make a lasting impression.
