Shanghai gets another international school

Construction of the British Wellington College’s Shanghai branch in Pudong will be completed this month, offering parents and students a chance to have a look at the campus, school officials said yesterday.

The Wellington College International Shanghai will start enrolling foreign students, between the ages of three and 18, in August 2014. Chinese students will need international passports for admission, the school said.

The annual school fee will be about 200,000 yuan (US$32,813) a year with teachers and courses from the United Kingdom.

“The school plans to have bilingual courses in the future for Chinese children,” David Cook, the founding headmaster of the school, said.

The school yesterday named one of the buildings after Hugo Swire, the British Minister of State for Foreign Office. The Hugo Swire Center will be home to sports, performing arts and cafeteria.

The Shanghai branch is smaller than the school in the UK but larger than the one in Tianjin. Located on the corner of Yaolong and Yaoti roads, the campus will cover a total floor area of 36,000 square meters, including four main buildings, three football pitches, a 400-meter Tartan running track, tennis and basketball courts and a six-lane swimming pool. The school is also very close to the Oriental Sports Center, which has more sports facilities.

The school can accommodate 1,500 students from kindergarten to high school. For the first year, it will recruit 100 to 200 students between three and 15 years old. There will be a written test and an interview for children who are eight years old or older.
