Welcome to High School

Seema Desai
High School Principal

A very warm welcome to Dover High School. Thank you for choosing our High School where you will be supported by a team of students and adults who will guide you through this transition. 

Our student ambassadors will greet you on your first day at school, helping you to connect with other students and navigate your way around the campus. Our Head of Grades and Mentors will keep an eye on how you are settling in and will be in touch with your parents. They will be with you on each stage of our journey through the UWCSEA High School.  Once all your classes start you will meet your dedicated subject and service teachers as well as activity and sports coaches and mentors. 

We are looking forward to getting to know you and discovering your interests and passions. At UWCSEA every part of your learning matters, inside and outside the classroom. We are also keen to see what you can give back to our community through service and leadership, both locally and beyond. 

I am also new to the school and to Singapore and am very much looking forward to meeting you all in person. 

Warm regards,
Seema Desai
High School Principal

A day in our High School

Learning in High School

At the heart of our educational philosophy is the belief that we prepare students not just for university, but for life. We believe that it is the skills and qualities that our students develop, as much as the knowledge and understanding they gain, that will define the quality of the life they live. Importantly, we believe that students thrive when they are given the chance to be competent and autonomous learners and when they feel a strong sense of connection and belonging to their communities.

Underpinning our programme are regular opportunities for self-development and reflection through our personal and social education programme. A focus on wellbeing assists our students in developing as self aware, resilient individuals who are well prepared for life after school, including for university. This is evident in the high level of independence that our students have, in their relationships with teachers and peers and in the expectation that they will take the lead on issues that matter to them and work through barriers to find success.

Students who value themselves and others and who are willing to commit to the ideals of the UWC movement will gain enormously from our High School learning programme. It would be hard to find a more constructive, energetic and focused community than our High School student body.

Technology

Appropriate use of technology is integrated into each classroom as a tool to facilitate learning. All students have a laptop equipped with College-supplied software, and access to on-campus helpdesk support. 

University and career guidance

Our university advising and career guidance programme provides students with advice and access to tools that assist them to gauge potential for future studies and possible career paths that will best suit them. These are explored as part of the PSE programme in mentor time and during grade-level assemblies as part of the process of advising.
