About The School
Wellington School’s main partner school in France is the Institut Saint-Dominique in Mortefontaine, some 40km to the north of Paris. The partnership started in 2000 and several hundred Wellington pupils have visited the school on exchange, on a trip, as part of a Comenius or Erasmus mobility or on an UCAPE sponsored event since then.
The Institut Saint-Dominique is an independent school for boys and girls aged 8-18, situated in a beautiful gated park in the countryside. The grounds formerly belonged to the Château of Mortefontaine, once the country residence of Napoleon Bonaparte’s brother. The school has an excellent academic reputation and the catchment area is wide.
Wellington and Saint-Dominique collaborate on a wide range of activities in addition to the exchange programme. We have jointly hosted an Indian Exchange and we are both partners in the current Erasmus Project, Art Nouveau – Art Renouveau.
