Wellington International College Shanghai likes to believe that they provide a high standard of education. The marketing is brilliant, the facilities are brilliant, however, the school grew too quickly and needed to take on too many teachers which meant far too many were substandard and obviously only in Shanghai for the money. When children return to their native countries they realise just how far behind they are their peers. Very disappointing experience. This is a school that charges more than most schools in the UK and the world. Please beward, they are only interested in your money!

Whilst my two Daughters received schooling at Wellington Shanghai International College I would have to give such a low review not on the fault of the class teachers but on the fault of the College in general. When my two daughters started their education at Wellington International College U.K. they were reminded of the Schools Core values. One of which was Individuality. One of my Daughters finds the struggles of schooling a little difficult, when Wellington found out initially that my daughter had been previously assessed for Additional needs they suggested that the School wasn’t for her, when I explained that this assessment showed that my daughter had no additional needs and if they had considered the findings of the report that they would find no reason to refuse her for this reason. It took several weeks for Wellington to conciede. My daughter had never attended an international school and this was very new to her, as was learning Mandarin. Each time a concern was raised by school they linked it again to her previous Assessment (which at this point was less than 6 months old) Each time suggesting that the School prides itself of academia and that we should send her again to a child psychologist. The school did not take into consideration her personal identity or individual needs (something that any state school can do) or offer her support. Eventually the school asked us to find her a new School, Which we did. Then Wellington decided after much discussion and explanation on why what they were doing was wrong and how I felt that Wellington removing her only one term in would be negatively effecting her confidence they then decided that she can have the additional support. I understand that the standards are high but I don’t understand why this didn’t happen sooner.
