We are looking to appoint a talented and ambitious head of primary school for Huili School Shanghai.
We are one of Wellington College China’s three Shanghai schools, and we work closely with Huili Nursery Shanghai and Wellington College International Shanghai. Almost all Huili pupils are Chinese nationals and teaching is equally divided between English and Chinese. Half our teachers are English-speakers who began their careers in UK state and independent schools. The school is committed to being China’s leading bilingual school.
Huili School Shanghai opened in 2018. It is selective and heavily over-subscribed. At the start of 2019-20 we have 564 pupils in grades 1 to 7, the equivalent of UK years 2 to 8. The school will comprise three parts: primary school from grades 1 to 5, junior high school from grades 6 to 8, and the high school from grades 9 to 12 which will open in 2021.
Huili School Shanghai provides Chinese pup ils with access to an education rooted in the traditional values and the progressive approach to learning synonymous with Wellington College. Our vision is to inspire pupils to become intellectual, independent, individual and inclusive. We call this the Huili identity. Our pupils will develop a strong, deep understanding of the rich heritage and culture of China and will be proud of their Chinese identity. They are encouraged to develop the values, aptitudes and knowledge needed to be effective global citizens and leaders. We aim to prepare pupils for success during and after life at the school.
Huili School Shanghai is based in outstand ing, purpose-built facilities, not far from the heart of Shanghai, and very close to Wellington College International Shanghai.
