Wellington College International Tianjin

Wellington College International Tianjin opened on 22 August 2011, as our first International school. It was born out of a vision to take the holistic model of education so successfully implemented at Wellington College, to the rest of the world.

WCI Tianjin is now a mature and vibrant school that absolutely embodies the values and ethos, and the drive for all-around excellence that is synonymous with Wellington. At the same time it is also a unique school responding to, and imbedded within the local culture of Tianjin. 

Wellington College International Tianjin is situated in the heart of the thriving city of 15 million people, a half hour by bullet train from Beijing. It is an oasis of calm as you walk through the gates, with beautiful landscaping, a running track and playing fields. With a state-of-the-art theatre, and indoor swimming pool among many other things, it has facilities to match the best international schools in the world.


Tianjin is a 3-18, fully co-educational school that sets the highest expectations both inside and outside of the classroom. It offers a wide range of subjects and co-curricular activities, right from the bilingual nursery to its thriving sixth form. Pupils sit iGCSEs and A levels, and go on to study at some of the world’s leading universities. The heritage and traditions of Wellington College are very much alive, valued and encouraged by pupils, staff and parents at the school, who drive genuine connection through joint projects, exchanges and summer schools. This is further developed through a number of Wellington College staff who have moved to Tianjin to work in the school, including the current Master, Julian Jeffrey.

Alongside the strong academic programme there is a tangible sense of community. Pastoral care is provided through a parallel house system, and there are many events and shows put on through the year. The school also runs the well-being programme that was developed at Wellington College.
