Wellington College International (Shanghai) opened in August 2014 for boys and girls aged three to ten in the Junior School, and from eleven to fourteen, both boarders and day students, in the Senior School. The older year groups will follow in the next two years.
Located in the Pudong district and easily reached by road and public transport, the College facilities are as good as any in the world of international education and, in their design and appearance, echo the distinctive classical style of Wellington College in the UK.
The buildings are set amidst one of the largest and most attractive campuses in the world. The first Wellington College in China opened its doors in Tianjin in August 2011. The aim for Wellington College International Shanghai is to establish itself as the leading international, coeducational, day and boarding, school in China. In achieving this aim, it will be actively building upon the long and successful history of Wellington College in the UK.
It's aim is to be a ‘world class’ school, comparing favourably with the very best schools anywhere around the globe, with a reputation centred on a breadth of excellence, both in provision and achievement.
Wellington College International Shanghai is a vibrant and challenging school, which opens the minds and hearts of students, teachers, parents and all members of the wider community.
It provides a transformative experience, equipping students with the personal self-discipline, integrity, responsibility, leadership and adaptability to face the demands of a rapidly changing world. It fosters amongst its students an appreciation and respect for their respective cultures, and in particular for those of its host country.
