If you are a returning family, we sincerely welcome you back. We are looking forward to receiving our first maths grades in November, where we are again anticipating top grades for all pupils.
We are starting this year with passion and energy; the school has already received its first IGCSE results in Spanish and French with pupils receiving the top grades A*. We are looking forward to receiving our first maths grades in November, where we are again anticipating A* for all pupils.
There have been some changes to the campus over the summer break. Firstly, our new Wellington College
International School has been completed, the teachers have been in over the summer break to ensure the environment
is ready for our pupils’ arrival on Wednesday.
We have developed a new Sixth Form Centre where our new pre-A level pupils will be able to study and collaborate
together. Our new Head of Sixth Form, Hatty Lueng and our university advisers Mrs. Emily Deacon and Ms. Connie
Zhao will be there to support all pupils in Junior High and WCIH Senior School to realise their aspirations and
ambitions and support them getting into the university of their choice.
Grade 1 and 2 pupils are going to be delighted with their newly enhanced classrooms and communal areas, where
every area, is a learning space. Each class will have two homeroom teachers and teaching assistants to support
academic excellence and to ensure your children, at this key age, are developing the skills they need to grow into
young adults to be proud of.
We also have a new Gymnasium for the older pupils to access and a completely redeveloped outdoor area, where
again every area is a learning experience.
Over the past 6 months, experienced leaders in the Huili College China group have been working closely to ensure
that the key learning objectives taught in each grade and year level are completely aligned. This has now enabled
us to standardise our curriculum and assessments against those in our family of schools.
We concluded the last academic year with our very first sports awards. Developing pupils with a strong competitive spirit is important to us and I am looking forward to getting our pupils back on the sports field and competing again.
This year you will see an increase in opportunities for you to meet teachers and leaders. There will also be
regular opportunities to have coffee with me to discuss future developments of our Wellington College Hangzhou
I am excited to see all the pupils back on Wednesday and to meet you all very soon.
