An education that produces outstanding results

Wellington College International Shanghai

Last academic year, year 11 pupils at Wellington College International Shanghai made remarkable achievements on their IGCSEs. 90% achieved an A or A* (7/8/9) grade in mathematics and 91% achieved an A or A* (7/8/9) grade in physics for instance. The graduating Class of 2023 was a unique cohort. Their exam years were bookended by the sudden onslaught and eventual retreat of a global pandemic. In the years in between, they contended with postponements, lockdowns and a host of other disruptions. Nevertheless, they achieved some spectacular results. Their average International Baccalaureate examination score was 36.7, well above the global average of 30.2. Nine of the school’s 2023 leavers achieved scores of 40 or higher, with a top score of 44! This year also saw a 100% pass rate for Wellington pupils doing second language (Language B) papers with grades 6+, and their IB Core average at grade 2 out of 3. They have already begun their university careers at some of the world’s top-ranked schools, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Caltech, the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Brown, Imperial College London, University College London, University of California Berkeley and more.

Creating young learners, connectors and changemakers

At the Early Years Centre of this top international school in Shanghai, your child will begin building the foundations for a lifetime of success. Through the school’s unique play-based curriculum, pupils do not just learn the basics of maths, literacy, language and the arts. In the school’s outdoor learning areas, they learn to take calculated risks while they develop fine and gross motor skills. Meanwhile, they cultivate several essential life skills, like building positive relationships with others, independence and self-care.

By the time they advance to Wellington’s Primary School, they will be ready to develop self-management, critical thinking, research, communication and social skills. As they broaden their academic horizons, they will become empathetic, self-reliant and reflective learners who embrace diverse cultures and have a thirst for knowledge.

This fully readies them for the Secondary School at Wellington College International Shanghai, where they engage with a deep, broad and challenging curriculum. Here they grow intellectually, creatively, physically and morally as they gaining the courage and resilience to stretch themselves well beyond their comfort zone. They are primed for success in their IGCSE in years 10 and 11 and then the IB as they advance to Sixth Form. The school’s talented team of teachers are with them along the way providing guidance and pastoral care.

A strong parent-teacher partnership

The Friends of Wellington (FOW) is the school’s parent and teacher association and brings the school community together to share, contribute and celebrate. It is integral to College life as it hosts several key events throughout the academic year. The FOW also contributes to the wider community and promotes the Wellington Value of Kindness through annual fundraising and charity activities.

A campus purpose-built for holistic education

The campus of Wellington College International Shanghai offers endless opportunities to put the school values into practice and they hope these will be guiding principles for their pupils as they navigate life well into adulthood.
