The pot of gold is in Willows and Overside (Darks) today


The Head and his wife welcomed three former First XV captains and partners for Sunday lunch this past weekend. There was much to discuss around the World Cup, and the very tense semi-final between England and South Africa the night before.

All three Old Wellingtonians are very much involved with the School. Paul Farmer (left, Willows 83) is a member of the Development Board, Rob Palfrey (Centre, Richards 92) is the Vice-Chair of the Board of Governors and Nigel Renyard (right, Willows 88) is Deputy Head (Co-Curricular).

Yesterday we invited former School Captains back to School for the unveiling of the School Captains boards. It was lovely to see so many Captains from across the eras. Hugh Salmon (Lights '51) was our oldest visitor and Will Mitchell (Richards '16) was our youngest. It was fabulous to hear the many memories of School.

The Headmaster recently attended a dinner in London marking the 20th anniversary of England winning the rugby world cup. Paul Farmer (Willows, '82) - pictured with Alistair Jackson (Darks, '82) and Steve Darrington (Oak, '82) – very generously sponsored a table for the celebratory event.

All 3 were in the '77-'78 U14 rugby team (pictured), the friendships formed 45 years ago have stood the test of time.


Amelia Crocombe (Fox's '22) has committed to Southern New Hampshire University, playing field hockey for PenMen and studying Psychology. She has already scored in her team's win against Saint Michael's.

Sir David Chipperfield - Lights 72 spoke to our students today about his time at Wellington School. He told the children to be curious, ask questions and to get influence from other cultures. Sir David also discussed winning the Pritzker Architecture Prize and how hard work and inspiration from his Art teacher at Wellington School helped him to become the wonderful success he is today.
