United Kingdom’s Wellington College, in a recent agreement with the Unison Group, is all set to open premium Wellington College Schools in India.
The first school will come up in Pune. Wellington College International Pune will be a co-educational day and boarding school for ages 2-18 being established on a campus designed by an award-winning British architect. The school will follow the English National Curriculum culminating in the IB Diploma, for which Wellington College is amongst the leading academic schools globally. WCI Pune will also offer unparalleled excellence in sports, music, and the arts. Further schools are also in planning, including full boarding schools.
There are currently six schools in the Wellington College International (WCI) family, with two outstanding partners in China and Thailand serving over 5,000 students. Each school is a recognised leader in its region and delivers world class academic results and university placements, including Oxbridge and Ivy League.
The schools will share the values, ethos, enduring quality and ambition of Wellington College, while combining the very best of British and Indian education.
WCI is a subsidiary of Wellington College, founded under the British Royal Charter in 1853, and a leading UK day and boarding school. From its strong heritage, Wellington is firmly future-facing, famous for its pioneering spirit and drive for all-round excellence.
“We are incredibly excited to be part of the Wellington College family. We look forward to working with Wellington in establishing outstanding schools in India. Wellington already has strong links with India through its existing students and an impressive Old Wellingtonian community. We see this as a wonderful opportunity for the students in India to attain a Wellington College education in their home country and go on to access the top universities of the world, Anuj Aggarwal, co-founder, Wellington College India.
WCI opening in India follows our strategy of establishing a network of outstanding schools in key global locations. India is a progressive country with a dynamic economy, rich culture and passion for education. WCI look forward to working with Unison to combine the best of British and Indian education, establishing outstanding schools which are distinctively Wellington, providing excellent academic outcomes and opportunities for all students, Scott Bryan, International Director, Wellington College International
