Wellington College International School Bangkok (WCIB)

Wellington College Bangkok opened in August 2018 and has quickly gained a reputation for being one of Bangkok’s leading international schools. Currently the School has 800+ students aged between 2 and 16, across Pre-Nursery to Year 11. In August 2024 we will open a Sixth Form for students aged 16-18 and the eventual plan is to accommodate 1500+ students.

The school’s facilities are world-class with a beautiful modern design and appearance which incorporates the distinctive features of Wellington College, Berkshire, and elements of Thai culture. The buildings are set amidst a large, 70-rai beautifully designed campus in Krungthep Kreetha, an area midway between Bangkok city and Bangkok International Airport, right next to the expansive greens and fairways of the Unico Grande Golf Course. In 2021, the new Senior School building (the first of two) opened – a spectacular and extraordinary development which confirms Wellington as the most dynamically progressive and educationally significant new school in the region. The second Senior School building will open in 2026 and new sports fields and tennis courts will open during the course of the first half of Term 1, 23-24.

We offer the English National Curriculum leading to IGCSEs at the end of Year 11 and A-levels at the end of Year 13. Wellington College Bangkok was the first school in the world to gain full COBIS Patron’s Accreditation within the first year of operation, and subsequent full membership of FOBISIA and CIS. In 2021, the new Senior School building (the first of two) will open—a spectacular and extraordinary development which confirms Wellington as the most dynamically progressive and educationally significant new school in the region.

We follow the educational philosophy of Wellington College – founded in Berkshire, England in 1859. We offer pioneering education to serve and help shape a better world. Our identity is summed up thus – Inclusive, Independent, Individual, Inclusive, Intellectual.
