Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Wellington College International School Bangkok provides world-class all-round education in English for children from 2-18 years old.

Wellington is a school like no other. Where many focus on examination results and view league table positions as the main criterion for success, the whole ethos of Wellington is focused on each and every individual who passes through our gates.

To be a Wellington student is to experience a wide variety of subjects and learning opportunities and, one way or another, to discover and pursue your passion. Thanks to our state-of-art facilities and resources, Wellingtonians quickly find that they have access to everything they need to progress quickly and enjoy what they do to the fullest.

We have enjoyed enormous success since opening our doors in August 2018 and in May 2019 Wellington College Bangkok became the first school in the world to gain full COBIS Patron’s Accreditation within its first year of operation: evidence of both excellence and great ambition.

The school is built adjacent to the lush and attractive Unico Grande Golf Club, in the emergingly upscale suburb of Krungthep Kreetha and its design, inside and out, sets it apart as one of the most stimulating, forward-thinking and dynamic schools you will find anywhere.

Teaching approach of the school

Wellington Scholars embark on a tailored programme for excellence, exploring, being challenged—and challenging themselves—to excel.
