EdFest 2021 | Full and virtual schedules now available!

There is no time like the present to start thinking about the future, especially when it comes to the crucial topic of how we teach our children. And this is why the theme for Wellington College China's 2021 Festival of Education is Interpreting the Future of Education. This annual gathering is an opportunity for educators, parents and enthusiasts to share ideas and gain new insights into teaching and learning and we are delighted to announce that the full schedule of events is available to view.


Our campuses in Tianjin, Shanghai and Hangzhou will host some of the foremost thought leaders in the field of education in China as they lead informative talks, panel discussions and workshops. This year we will explore what the future of education may hold in store for us via five key strands:

Future Schools


Early Years Education






Mental Health


Events from the past years

Additionally, for those unable to attend any of these live events in person, we are hosting a series of online virtual EdFest sessions featuring not only international educators but also authors, researchers and television personalities.  


Festival Director Paul Rogers says, "Recent events have reaffirmed to us that we owe it to our children to continue to be forward-thinking when it comes to their education. As educators, we should always be reassessing current assumptions and considering new possibilities. This is why we are truly excited about this year's programme of events. For both our live and online sessions, we have hand-selected a roster of some of the most impressive minds in progressive education today, both here in China and from abroad."


Our programmes for each campus are as follows:

Tianjin – Saturday, 17 April


Shanghai – Saturday, 24 April


Hangzhou – Sunday, 25 April

Our virtual events will take place from 18–23 April. Programmes are as follows:
