Curriculum structure

Dover Infant School Investigative time

The UWCSEA curriculum shares a common structure across all elements, consisting of Standards, Strands, Conceptual Understandings and Benchmarks. This is not only for the Academic element of our programme, but also for Outdoor Education, Personal Social Education and Service. In this regard, we are the first educational institution in the world to have a concept-based Learning Programme in all learning areas. Rationales are written for all five of our programme elements, outlining the purpose for its inclusion in the UWCSEA learning programme. 

Here is a sample of our Visual Arts curriculum with an explanation of our curriculum design:
