FACILITIES

 

In keeping with the Wellington College commitment to a holistic education, Wellington College Bilingual Hangzhou is situated on a purpose built, state-of-the-art campus containing all of the facilities required to provide pupils with access to the very best academic and co-curricular opportunities. The appearance and design of the building is inspired by the distinctive architecture at the Wellington College in England.

The science laboratories, the art rooms and the design technology suites are designed, first and foremost, to encourage an enjoyment in both practical and theoretical work. They are also capable of creating that extra level of creativity and ambition that great scientists, artists and designers strive for and achieve.

At the very heart of the school, geographically and academically, is the College library. Its focus is books and encouraging a love of reading, but it is also a multi-media centre for pupils, promoting independent study. For all Wellingtonians the library is a learning resource designed to generate a meaningful interest in, indeed love of, reading and research.

The Performing Arts centre caters for our musicians, dancers and thespians, with dedicated practice rooms, the dance studio, the Black Box and, for major concerts and productions, the 550- seat College Theatre; also the venue for school assemblies.

Sport is another major Wellington priority. Here, the facilities are second to none, with the sports hall, football pitch, a 400-metres all weather synthetic running track, basketball and badminton courts, and two swimming pools, including a 25 metre, six-lane competition pool. Few schools in the world are blessed with the resources available at Wellington, all designed to support our wide- ranging co-curricular activities programme, both after school and at weekends.
