Paul Rogers, Founding Executive Master of Wellington College Hangzhou is on board in Hangzhou today.
Paul Rogers has worked as Founding Principal at Taylor’s International School Puchong, Malaysia for the past three years where he has helped oversee the preparation, launch and successful establishment of the school. Enrolment is currently at 1,300 students and rising.
Prior to working in Malaysia, Paul established, as Headmaster and Member of the Board, the first ‘Article One’ Bilingual International School in Makuhari, Japan where he worked for six years. Makuhari International School grew to full capacity during his time there and was a model for other similar schools to be established over the following years.
Paul trained as a teacher at La Saint Union College of Further Education in Southampton UK, specialising in Music, after which he obtained the National Professional Qualification for Headship from the Leadership College as well as becoming an Associate of the Royal College of Music – focusing on piano and cello. Prior to training to become a teacher he studied music at Hull University.
Paul is looking forward with great enthusiasm to working with the Wellington College Team to help make Wellington College Bilingual Hangzhou the very best bilingual school in the area and beyond. Following the local Zhejiang curriculum framework coupled with the Wellington identity, values and approach, Wellington College Bilingual Hangzhou will create an immersive English learning environment that at the same time echoes Wellington’s unique holistic approach to education. Offering a challenging and invigorating curriculum alongside a state of the art learning environment (based on the very highest standards of excellence) and a wide range of co-curricular activities such as sport, arts and music; our vision is for all pupils to achieve the Wellington Identity: to be Inspired, Intellectual, Independent, Individual and Inclusive.
Paul is passionate about education and strongly believes that every child is uniquely gifted and uniquely different; and that our duty as educators is therefore to ensure we provide the very best personalised educational experiences we can for each and every child.
At the core of all excellent schools are the staff: both academic and non-academic. Paul is looking forward immensely to working with those staff already in place and helping ensure we continue to recruit the very best educators to drive Wellington College Bilingual Hangzhou forward to an exciting future.
This September, Paul will meet with Hangzhou prospective parents, together with the founding Academic Leadership team. Please stay tuned!
