Wellington College International School Bangkok opened in August 2018 and has enjoyed an enormously successful first year, making excellent progress in establishing the school both educationally and as a strong Wellington community.
The school boasts a state of the art campus and excellent sports facilities, located in Eastern Bangkok. It is a co-educational day school for 2-18 years, which is currently open from Pre-Nursery to year 7 (it will grow over the next few years), offering IGCSE and the IB diploma.
The bold, bespoke school design responds to the education ethos of Wellington College, as well as the climate and culture of Thailand. Shunning ‘institution’ corridors, the layout introduces instead flexible communal learning spaces for small-group discussions, individual work and constructive play, allowing teachers to introduce concepts of independent learning from an early age. It also allows children to remain indoors when temperature or pollution levels demand it. The campus will continue to develop next year, with the introduction of bespoke drama and Harkness spaces, and a new 600 seat performing arts centre.
The School aims to deliver a world class academic and all-round education in English, underpinned by the Wellington Identity and values that are already very much alive. The Wellington community is strong, with the parent body being already vocal advocates of the school, and it has also attracted some of the best teachers in the industry to Bangkok, under the leadership of Master Christopher Nicholls. After one year, Wellington College International Bangkok is building a leading reputation in a City where there is already a wide range of International education on offer.
