Wellington College International Hangzhou will offer a world-class international education for children of expatriate families from the ages of 5 to 18. In our first year if operation, we will be enrolling children in Pre-Prep and Lower Prep, from Years 1-6, ages 5 – 11.  In the Prep phases of the school, the curriculum is based on the National curriculum for England, supported by the International Primary Curriculum. In the Senior school students follow the IGCSE followed by the IB Diploma or A Levels. As with all Wellington College schools, the Wellington Values and Identities form the heart of our holistic education.

We view each pupil as an individual with unique abilities, preferences and goals. We have designed an academic programme which is flexible enough to motivate and inspire each individual to achieve their maximum potential. Pupils are introduced to a wide variety of subjects and, with the support of our house system, they are encouraged to discover and pursue their passion. Thanks to our state-of-art facilities and resources, Wellington College pupils quickly find that they have access to everything they need to progress quickly and enjoy their subjects to the fullest.

We also encourage our pupils to broaden their understanding and knowledge of the world around them, rather than focus solely on their classroom lessons. Wellingtonians are given plenty of opportunities to join in trips and excursions, both within China and internationally; from a ski trip to the alpine slopes of Northern Italy, to a cultural excursion to study traditional Shinto shrines in Tokyo, our pupils have the chance to explore exciting new places which inspire new ways of learning.

From our daily links to the Wellington College in the UK to our annual events in collaboration with other Wellington College China schools, Wellington’s academic life is rich, varied and outward-looking in its pursuit of excellence. We are always pushing to improve our academic approach in order to ensure that we can give each pupil the best possible support, allowing them to pursue their passions and achieve their desired goals. Ultimately, we believe that this approach will help pupils become the best adults they can possibly be.
