Wellington is a registered charity and currently has about 1,050 pupils aged between 13 and 18.

Her Majesty Queen Victoria laid the foundation stone in 1856 and inaugurated the School’s public opening on 29 January 1859. The college was designed by John Shaw, Jr., who had also previously worked as an architect for Eton College.
