Why work and live

in Berkshire?

Berkshire is able to offer country living, close to London, with brilliant transport links. Berkshire’s booming towns such as Reading, Newbury and Slough provide all the shops and entertainment while traditional villages such as Cookham and Bray.

The county is home to many historic sites such as Windsor Castle, giving it the Royal County of Berkshire title. Windsor Castle is the largest inhabited castle in the world and has been a royal home and fortress for over 900 years with the Queen still staying here throughout the year.

You can get a tour, view the state apartments and watch the Changing of the Guard. Look out for the Royal Standard above the Round Tower to see if the Queen is in residence.

Legoland is a great attraction for children of all ages. Beale Park near Reading is also a great day out for the family, as is the Tropical Rainforest attraction near Newbury. And adults can enjoy a flutter on the horses all year round at Newbury and Ascot Racecourses.

The first thing I noticed when I came to Wellington was how friendly it felt – nearly everyone you pass smiles and says ‘hello.’ Three and a half years on, that friendliness is still one of the things I most appreciate about working here. It really does feel like a community.

Matron

Employed at Wellington College since 2016

Being a House Matron for Wellington College, I see as a privilege. The college promote their values every day, in which we all embrace. Just to be part of a childs life here at Wellington is so rewarding, to help guide them in life skills, to listen, to support, to watch them grow & to just simply help make a difference, if they come to me for any or all of those things, then my job is done. Team work is key and we are very lucky here at Anglesey to have built this strong connection to make the house feel safe & feel like their home. Wellington College is a community that make a difference…
