“I can think of no better way for us to deliver our purpose of pioneering education to help serve and shape a better world than by sharing the very best of Wellington College. It is important that our international schools are not a clone of Wellington College, but from that shared ethos and vision they deliver exceptional quality education uniquely tailored to their communities. It is through this that we have also brought vividly to life a dialogue between different pedagogies – which now delivers so much enrichment to the intellectual and cultural development of our students and their communities across the whole family of schools. I know this will continue to be the case in Jakarta.”
