with Wellington College in China
Wellington College International Shanghai opened in August 2014 as Wellington’s second partnership school in China and has rapidly developed a reputation as the premier international school in the city. It currently has 1,418 pupils from over 40 countries and is continuing to grow. The College is divided into three schools, with a Senior School (years 9 to 13) and Prep School (years 1 to 8) on the main campus and Early Years (nursery and reception) in a new purpose-built centre nearby. The College curriculum combines our focus on the Wellington values with the best of English and international curriculums. The youngest children in the nursery and reception classes follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. From year 1, the English National Curriculum provides the core of the curriculum in maths and literacy, with other lessons following the International Primary Curriculum. From year 6 up, all children follow a school-devised curriculum, based on the English National Curriculum and taught by subject specialists to prepare for the study of IGCSE subjects in years 10 and 11. Pupils in years 12 and 13 follow the prestigious IB Diploma Programme.
Wellington College International Shanghai aims to be the best international school in China and to be great place for talented professionals to develop their careers. Our academic results to date have been outstanding, our IB students averaged above 38 points in 2020, placing Wellington comfortably alongside the best international IB schools. Most of our IGCSE pupils gain eight or more A*-A grades, with A* being by far the most common grade.
Success in public examinations is important and we celebrate it. However, at Wellington College, excellent exam results and great university destinations, in the UK and worldwide, are only part of the picture. We want our pupils to be the very best people that they can be: to be kind, to have integrity in their actions, to take responsibility when necessary, to have respect for their environment, for others and themselves, and finally to show courage when needed. The Wellington values frame the way we think about what it is be a Wellingtonian, including the ways we work and what we hope to become.
We are looking for a specialist teacher of modern foreign languages who can teach French at key stage 3, IGCSE and IB Diploma level and Spanish preferably at key stage level.
Wellington is an academically selective school and our teachers enjoy the challenge and engagement of our diverse pupil body. The results of the modern foreign language department are excellent, and we are a hard-working team. Our department is looking for someone who is ready to build on our current success. The chosen candidate should be positive, kind, flexible and passionate about languages, and have an ability to inspire a love of their culture to their students. Experience in international settings is desirable, as is experience in the UK state or independent sectors.
Our employment package is excellent, with very competitive salaries, housing, flights, insurance and other benefits. We aim to be exemplary employers and have had very low rates of teacher turnover since we opened.
