LSC congratulates Michael Higgins on his appointment as Master of Wellington College International Tianjin, China. Michael will be taking up his post in August 2015 after 10 highly successful years as Head of Junior School at The British International School, Cairo, Egypt.

The Chairman of Wellington College International Tianjin, Joy Qiao, confirmed Michael’s appointment following a thorough and robust recruitment process interviewing an outstanding shortlist of candidates. The candidates underwent a series of interviews and assessments involving the Board and various stakeholders both at Wellington College in the UK and at Wellington College International Tianjin.

Wellington College International Tianjin (WCIT) opened in September 2011, becoming the first international school opened by the prestigious Wellington College, located in Berkshire, England.
