Wellington College International School Bangkok (WCIB) opened in August 2018 and enjoyed an enormously successful first year, making excellent progress in establishing the school both educationally and with the beginnings of a strong Wellington College community in Thailand. The school recently passed a highly stringent inspection by COBIS (Council of British International Schools) to earn their highest level of accreditation, COBIS Patron’s Accreditation, becoming the first school in the world to achieve this distinction within the first year of opening.
Located in the fast-growing Krungthep Kreetha area of eastern Bangkok, the School boasts a state of the art educator-designed campus and excellent sports facilities. It is a co-educational day school for students age 2-18 years, and is currently enrolling students from Pre-Nursery through to Year 7 (ages 2 to 11), and will eventually in the future offer IGCSE in Year 10-11 and either A-levels or the IB Diploma for Years 12-13.
The bold, bespoke school design responds to the education ethos of Wellington College, as well as the climate and culture of Thailand. Eschewing ‘institutional’ corridors, the layout introduces flexible communal Learning Studios for small-group discussions, individual work and constructive play, allowing teachers to reinforce concepts of independent learning from an early age all the way through to the Senior School. It also allows children to remain indoors when temperature or air quality levels demand it. The campus will continue to develop in the coming years, with a new 600 seat performing arts Theatre opening in early 2020 and the Senior School opening in 2021.
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 Founding Master Christopher Nicholls. Now in its second year, Wellington College Bangkok is building a leading reputation in a highly competitive market where a huge range of options for international schools is available.
