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 1,280 pupils and continues to grow by over 150 pupils per year. 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.

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.

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.
