The Inspired teacher is the one who changed your life. The one who stepped forward every day – in or out of the classroom – to share their own passion for their subject, their own joy in exploration, discussion, creation, invention. And that’s a wonderful model for students. However inspired our teachers may be (and they are), our students can always be more.
Is there a Wellington College type of person? Yes, there is. Our students are works-in-progress. Our adults – we should be the finished article!
The Wellington Identity is a list of five adjectives, each beginning with the letter ‘I’. Together, they describe the type of person a Wellington student is becoming.
As teachers inspire and challenge students, so they become interested and interesting: this is where intellectual development begins. We want our students to keep asking important questions – even difficult questions – and to be fired with a genuine spirit of enquiry.
We encourage our pupils to become truly independent, as those who can think, learn and cope independently will be the leaders and game-changers of the future.
There is only one Wellington College Bangkok – but each student makes it their very own school. All our students have the space and freedom to become truly individual, respecting themselves and respecting the individuality of others.
At Wellington, students understand that with great privilege comes great responsibility. We want our students all to leave the school with a burning sense of responsibility to make the world a better place.
