We aim to keep the pace of the study day at a level consistent with the needs of your students to maintain high levels of engagement and learning. Students will be introduced to the role of HMS Wellington through film and mobile interactive experiences.

They will then rotate around three workshops;


A computer interactive, giving students a hands-on experience of controlling a convoy.

Navigation and tour

Following a brief introduction to basic navigation the students will be led by our Master Mariner to explore the ships layout and gun posts in detail.

On Watch

A highly interactive workshop giving an opportunity to experience the tasks involved in a sailor’s job including communications such as semaphore, Morse code and the bell. Also, to explore new technologies in WWII and their use in the theatre of war.

A final whole group Q&A with our Master Mariner will pull together the students’ experiences and learning.

With prior discussion we can alter elements to make it suitable and specific to the needs of your students. Please contact our Education Development Officer at edo@thewellingtontrust.org

The ship can accommodate up to 30 students, but we are happy to run study days for smaller groups if required.
