“A lot of schools talk about holistic education but Wellington completely follows through with this approach and genuinely cares about educating the whole child in preparation for the challenges they will face throughout school and in later life. The pupils are exceptional and as much as we push them to be the best version of themselves, they push us to do the same. That, along with the open, supportive and welcoming atmosphere that all staff maintain, is what makes Wellington a great place to teach.” 

Emma Hambling, Deputy Head (Prep School)

Work With Us

Opened in August 2014 and located in the New Bund area, Wellington College International Shanghai is a fully co-educational day and boarding school with over 750 pupils, aged 2 to 18.

We fully embrace the ethos of our prestigious and forward-thinking partner, Wellington College in the UK. Our curriculum is based on the British national curriculum, though we offer a unique model of holistic education and pupil development which revolves around instilling the Wellington Identity and our core values of courage, respect, integrity, kindness and responsibility.

As such, every member of staff strives to build a vibrant and caring community where all pupils are given the necessary means to reach academic excellence and holistic development through our expansive co-curricular and Academy programmes. Wellington College International offers you the chance to join this exceptional teaching environment and help us make it even better.

In order to support this vision, we ensure that our facilities remain exceptional, while also offering plenty of opportunities for professional learning and training. You will have the chance to work alongside educators drawn from across the globe, who can share their extensive experience from a diverse range of other industries besides teaching. Furthermore, thanks to our close ties to Wellington College UK, staff members are often able to attend the Festival of Education held there annually.

In short, the College provides a world class and scholarly environment and we are looking for people of outstanding imagination, intellect and passion to join us as we aim to both develop the excellence of our own pupils and forge new directions in education.

As well as teaching opportunities, we also offer a range of non-academic support roles as the College continues to expand. Whatever your desired role, we can offer an attractive salary complete with a competitive benefits package. For further details, inquire about specific roles here.
