Statement on website content

Please be aware that the records and historic collections of Wellington College reflect the period in which they were created, and some content may include opinions, language and imagery which are unacceptable by today’s standards.

To preserve the records’ historical integrity, we have not removed this content and we remain committed to continuing to provide access to the archival material, but Wellington College does not support or condone these views in any way.

Opinions expressed in the ‘Wellington Through The Decades’ pages are those of the individual contributors and not of Wellington College.
