WCB Head Girl off to Canada for University study

1st May 2020 in Success

Wellington College Belfast is delighted to announce that our Head Girl, Molly has received – and accepted – an offer from the University of Toronto.

The offer comes alongside the ‘Lester B. Pearson International Scholarship program’ which provides very generous academic and financial support for Molly for the full duration of her degree.

This is a wonderful achievement by a very talented pupil and we have no doubt that Molly will continue to excel in her studies while at the University of Toronto, which begins in September 2021, following her gap year.

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the Wellington College website. We want all of our pupils to achieve the highest standards in all areas of their lives.

This view point is clearly supported by CCEA as we see Education for Employability at the heart of the revised Northern Ireland Curriculum and with the new CEIAG guidelines from the Department of Education. The aims of the department have been adapted to meet these new requirements.
