Admissions Process


We use OpenApply admissions management to ensure that the admissions process is as smooth, friendly and easy as possible. Our admissions process consists of four clear steps.


Comments: please show the four steps below as separate drop downs (Step 1, Step 2, Step 3 and Step 4) as green sections below to keep the text to a minimum


We encourage all parents applying to our school to visit the campus for a short tour and introduction to the College. This gives us a valuable opportunity to get to know our community members more, and allows parents to gain a deeper insight into Wellington Values and Identity, our vision and mission, and our commitment to a holistic education. If you are unable to attend in person, due to researching the College from abroad, we can arrange a Skype chat, telephone introduction, or a tour once you arrive in Hangzhou.

Once you have completed the previous steps, a member of the Admissions team will assist you with the rest of the enrolment process, including any required admissions assessments. Details of the admissions assessments we require can be found in the Applying to Wellington booklet.
