UK’s Wellington College International and India’s Unison Group have entered a partnership to open premium schools in India. The college had announced this partnership last month. The schools will share the values, ethos, enduring quality and ambition of Wellington College, while combining the very best of British and Indian education, Wellington College said in an official statement.
“The long-term strategy is to open a group of schools across India. The first school will open in Pune (opening 2023) and a second to be confirmed soon. We are looking to grow the number of schools, but at a pace where we can ensure the quality and exclusivity (rather than quantity) of provision,” said Anuj Aggarwal, Co-Founder, Unison Education Foundation.
“Wellington College International Pune will provide an alternative to the current schools in Pune. Wellington’s focus will be on delivering all-round excellence,” Aggarwal said.
Wellington College International (WCI) Pune will be a coeducational day and boarding school for ages 2-18 years with a student strength of around 800.
There are currently six schools in the WCI family of schools, with two outstanding partners in China and Thailand serving over 5,000 students. Each school is a recognised leader in its region and delivers world class academic results and university placements, including Oxbridge and Ivy League. Unison Group is a premium education provider in India with four education institutions in Dehradun and Delhi NCR, including Unison World School, one of India’s leading girls’ boarding schools. Unison Group institutions are known for their quality and academic rigour.
“We see this as a wonderful opportunity for the students in India to attain a Wellington College education in their home country and go on to access the top universities of the world,” mentioned Mr. Aggarwal
WCI is an international schools’ group. It is a subsidiary of the Wellington College, founded under the British Royal Charter in 1853, and a leading UK day and boarding school.
