wellington-shanghai-anna-shoboltOn 26 September, Wellington College International Shanghai had the pleasure of welcoming Anna Shotbolt as a visitor. Anna Shotbolt is First Secretary, Head of Education and Skills at the British Embassy Beijing. Anna arrived and was received by Joy Qiao, the Chair of Governors, Dr. Ahmed Hussain, Director of Schools of Wellington College China, and Gerard MacMahon, Master of Wellington College International Shanghai. The tour, led by Rachel Chadwick, Director of Admissions, allowed Shotbolt to visit a wide range of classrooms and to meet the wonderful pupils. She was able to experience at first hand the unique values and identity of a Wellington College education and its holistic approach to learning.

She was then able to visit the New Bund Headquarters, who hold a long-standing cooperation with Wellington College China. Stephen Shi from the New Bund Investment Corporation Ltd introduced the impressive New Bund project that includes many high-end residential, commercial and social amenities in partnership with major multinational corporations. At the heart of the project is the partnership with Wellington College China, to offer the best international and bilingual education to both expatriate and Chinese families in Shanghai.

She then visited the newest member of the Wellington College family of schools in China, Wellington College Bilingual Shanghai Early Years Centre. She was welcomed by Vanessa Szucs-Hussain, Master of Wellington College Bilingual Shanghai Early Years Centre, and her leadership team. Wellington College Bilingual Shanghai, an educational partnership between Shanghai Lujiazui Group and Wellington College, joined the Wellington College family in March 2016 and now there are over 200 children attending. Aimed at providing a Wellington education to Chinese national families, the school is specifically designed to meet the needs of children between 2 and 6 years of age. Shotbolt toured the purpose-built bilingual setting, and saw the bilingual Chinese pre-school children involved in a variety of learning through play activities. She was impressed by the indoor and outdoor learning spaces and by the team of highly motivated and qualified early years practitioners.

Following her visit to both campuses, Shotbolt commented: “I was very impressed to see how both the international and bilingual schools are bringing the very best British education to China and adapting it to the needs of Shanghai’s international and local communities."
