From the head of school

"We are, at our heart, a values-based school. Whilst we are incredibly ambitious and constantly strive to do the very best for each and every child in our school, we never compromise on our core principles. Rooted in our Wellington Values, we have a firm belief that academic success can only and should only be built on a respect for and acknowledgement of individual needs.

"Every Wellington Shanghai pupil should feel safe, be happy and have the opportunity to make friends. It is in this context that we provide the space, resources and inspiration for all pupils to experience success in a way that
is meaningful to them. We prepare them not only for tertiary education and the world of work, but to be changemakers, influencers and protagonists for a positive and sustainable future in the world.

"Our aim is to be recognised as one of the leading schools in the world. In doing so, we aim to provide a holistic education that brings out the passion and spark in your children. Of course, we cannot achieve this without the support from you, our parents. We know that the most fulfilling and rewarding education is built on strong links between the school and home, so we value the role that you have to play in your child’s education."
