with Wellington College in China
Wellington College China is a partner of Wellington College in England. It has three schools in Shanghai, all close to each other, not far from the heart of this exciting, international city. Our schools provide an outstanding education for more than 5,000 local and international children aged between 2 and 18 years old. Wellington College China are also winners of HR Asia Best Employers to work for Award, 2020.
Huili School Shanghai is Wellington’s bilingual school for Chinese students, which opened in August 2016. There are now more than 1,200 pupils in Huili nursery (Early Years 1-4) and Huili School (grades 1 to 9) and this August saw the opening of our state-of-the-art high school building and the start of IGCSE courses. Over the next three years, the school is expected to grow by more than 100 pupils per year and will be offering the IBDP.
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. We talk about giving our pupils the best of both worlds. Half of our lessons are in English and half in Chinese. Half of our teachers are English-speakers and half are Chinese. It is our desire to imbue every pupil with our five core values: 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.
Secondary Spanish teacher
In Junior High (KS3), all students study Spanish as a third language. Progress is rapid with students enjoying language learning and appreciating the value of learning multiple languages. Currently, there is one IGCSE class in Grade 9 and we expect to have the same next year. We also expect to be able to offer IBDP Spanish in grades 11 and 12. We are looking for an enthusiastic practitioner who is passionate about language and able to teach to at least IGCSE level. Experience of IBDP and/or A-Level would also be an advantage.
In addition to high quality professional development and job satisfaction, staff receive a very competitive salary and an excellent accommodation and wellbeing package. The welcome we provide for teachers new to China, including induction programmes in the UK and China, is second to none.
