Application process and criteria

Wellington College Bangkok accepts applications on a rolling basis. For families with high interest, we recommend applying early in order to take advantage of limited class sizes.

Application process and criteria


Applications are received all year round; acceptance is subject to assessment and availability.

Once you have decided to apply to Wellington College Bangkok, the process is as follows:

Step 1.

Submit a paper-based application form or fill out the online application, along with all available supporting documents as outlined in the application checklist and pay the non-refundable THB 5,000 application fee. Once there is proof of bank transfer and/or payment is received, the admissions team will confirm receipt and contact you to schedule an assessment.

Step 2.

For younger children applying for Early Years Foundation Stage (age 2-4 years old), an in-person assessment is performed at Wellington College Bangkok by a member of the Academic Team.

For Key Stage 1 and up (5 years old and over), applicants are interviewed by the Academic Team and take an online test to gauge their readiness and potential to access the curriculum.

Step 3.

The admissions team and academic team review the results of the assessment, with academic records from previous schools are also an important factor in making a decision. Any special education needs would need to be shared in order for the School to determine if SEN resources in place are sufficient for each child.
Decision by Admissions Committee (whether Accept, Waitlist, or Denied) will be communicated by email and phone call within ten working days.

Step 4.

Should an applicant be offered a place at Wellington College Bangkok, a Letter of Offer will be sent by courier or mail to parents or guardian. The Letter of Offer package includes:

  • Enrolment agreement that parents and/or guardians must read, sign and return the signatory page to the school.
  • Invoice for payment of THB 200,000 registration fee to secure place for each accepted student (due within 10 working days of receipt).
  • Tuition for the 1st term of entry and the refundable 150,000 Baht security deposit are due before beginning class.
