The UK’s Wellington College International will open its first school in Pune, officials said. The college announced last month its partnership with Indian group Unison to open premium schools in India.
“The long-term strategy is to open a cluster of schools across India. The first school will open in Pune (opening in 2023) and a second will be confirmed soon. We are looking to increase the number of schools, but at a pace where we can ensure the quality and exclusivity (rather than quantity) of the offering, ”said Anuj Aggarwal, Co-Founder, Unison Education Foundation.
“Wellington College International Pune will provide an alternative to the current schools in Pune. Wellington will focus on overall excellence, ”said Aggarwal.
Wellington College International (WCI) Pune will be a boarding and coeducational day school for children aged 2 to 18 with an enrollment of approximately 800 students.
WCI is a group of leading international schools. It is a branch of Wellington College, founded under the British Royal Charter in 1853, and a leading day school and boarding school in the United Kingdom.
There are currently six schools in the WCI family of schools with two partners in China and Thailand serving over 5,000 students.
The Unison Group offers education in India with four educational institutions in Dehradun and Delhi NCR including Unison World School, one of the leading boarding schools for girls in India.
