The name ‘Wellington’ has a worldwide reputation in education for the highest quality of teaching and learning and so it is at Wellington College China’s two international schools in Shanghai and Tianjin. The Group is now looking to further expand by opening a Bilingual School in Shanghai, which will also draw on over 150 years of the heritage, excellence and success of our partner school, the prestigious royal foundation, Wellington College in Berkshire. Our new bilingual school builds on these proud traditions to offer Chinese national children an education for the future.
Wellington College Bilingual Shanghai will open in August 2018, with over 350 children from Grade 1 to Grade 6 (UK equivalent to Year 2 to 7). Wellington College Bilingual Shanghai combines Wellington’s holistic, British approach to educating the whole child, with the enduring strengths of the Chinese curriculum and focus on learning. Our curriculum, designed to deliver high quality education while promoting recognised areas of learning and development, will offer every child their own, personalised learning journey. It is our desire to afford every child the opportunity of growth and fulfilment in a setting which imbues the five core values of Wellington: Courage, Integrity, Respect, Kindness and Responsibility. We encourage and expect our Chinese pupils to develop the Wellington identity: to be inspired, intellectual, independent, individual and inclusive.
The College will benefit from strong links with Wellington in England, which will be apparent in every sphere of College life, from the focus on the Wellington Values and the Wellington Identity to the pastoral care through our house system, the house names and our pupils’ uniform.
Wellington College Bilingual Shanghai locates in the New Bund area in Pudong which is easy to get access from anywhere in Shanghai.
