The Arthur Wellesley society

Arthur Wellesley is perhaps better known as The Duke of Wellington, or ‘The Iron Duke’ who, as Prime Minister, helped found King’s College School in 1829. The Arthur Wellesley Society arranges talks at school, visits to the theatre, exhibition trips, and from time to time, celebratory dinners for the parent body of both the junior and senior schools in addition to former pupils and parents. Membership of the Society entitles members to priority booking for all events. Currently, those who would like to do so are invited to make a voluntary family donation of £15 each year.

If you would like to suggest a future event, and for further details on becoming a member of the society, please contact the Vice-Chairman Eleanor Sturge at
