Wellington College China is a partner of Wellington College in England. It has three schools in Shanghai, all within close proximity of each other and providing mutual support. Between them they provide an outstanding education for nearly 1,700 local and international children aged between 2 and 18 years old.
Wellington College International Shanghai opened in August 2014 as Wellington’s second partnership school in China. It currently has 1,140 pupils and continues to grow by over 150 pupils per year. The College is divided into three schools with a Pre-Prep (Nursery to Year 2), Prep School (Year 3 to Year 8) and the Senior School (Years 9 to 13). The College curriculum combines our focus on the Wellington Values with the best of the English and international curricula. 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 them for the study of a range of IGCSE subjects at Years 10 and 11. Pupils in Year 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, all of 2018 Year 13 students gained their IB Diploma, and the average score was 36.5 points out of a possible 45, which places Wellington comfortably within the top band of international schools in relation to the IB. All of the IGCSE students gained at 7 or more A*-B grades, 47% of the overall grades were A* making it the most common grade, whilst 75% of grades were A*- A and 96% A*- B.
Huili School is Wellington’s bilingual school that opened in August 2018 with 276 pupils from Grade 1 to Grade 6 (UK equivalent to Year 2 to 7).

Huili School 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.

Huili aims to be the most forward-thinking and innovative school in this great city. In shanghai we want our children to become the very best versions of themselves.
