Graduation Success

Our annual Graduation ceremony took place on the 26th April 2017. We were delighted to welcome our distinguished guest Clare Pearson, Chair of the British Chamber of Commerce for China, who delivered a truly inspirational speech to our pupils. The evening was a great success; more than half of our Year 13 pupils performed or spoke on stage, some of whom were performing on stage here at Wellington for the first time.

Our graduates are going on to study at some of the most prestigious universities across the world, including Parsons School of Design in New York, the Universities of Toronto, NYU, Warwick, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Royal Holloway, the London School of Economics (LSE), Central Saint Martins School of Art, as well as Bond and Monash Universities in Australia. We are immensely proud of their achievements.

These young Wellingtonians leave us with the values instilled in them during their time here with us; we know that they are well equipped to progress on to the next stage in their lives and we wish them all the very best as they leave us, safe in the knowledge that they will forever be part of the global Wellington family.

Our vision at college is to educate pupils to thrive in an ever-changing global society, and there are few occasions more gratifying than seeing passions being pursued at some of the world’s finest and most progressive universities and higher education institutions. Our pupils have worked tremendously hard to achieve the offers below and we are very proud of them indeed.

Congratulations need to be extended in a variety of directions. The invaluable support of a truly professional and motivated teaching team who have guided pupils through a myriad of selection and opportunity in finding the right courses and locations for them; the relentless and ongoing support of parents in communicating proactively with representatives of the College and most importantly, for allowing the College to bring out the very best in their children academically.

Finally, our huge congratulations go to our pupils. In persevering to achieve their set goals they have learned lessons in humility, independence in learning and research, vital soft skills in communication, teamwork and the importance in trusting others. Their achievements are even more incredible, considering that some of them are non-native English speakers and they are competing with students from all over the world. Our vision states ‘we aspire to create a caring international community that develops well-rounded individuals with strong values and the skills to thrive in an ever-changing global society. These are the pupils that we are sending out into the wider world.
