Welcome to Middle School

Cameron Hunter
Middle School Principal

On behalf of the Middle School Leadership Team it is my pleasure to welcome you and your family to Middle School at UWCSEA Dover Campus.

Middle School teaching and learning sits at an exciting yet precarious moment in the life of our students as they simultaneously seek independence from, as well as the support of, the adults in their lives. Our Middle School learning programme is purposefully designed for this significant period of transition. We aim to ensure that our students have a strong sense of belonging, together with increased opportunities for independence and responsibility. A core team of specialist teachers who understand the developmental needs of this age group work tirelessly to help each student to realise their potential.

Throughout their time in our Middle School, students are engaged in all of the five elements of the UWCSEA learning programme: academics, activities, outdoor education, personal and social education and service. While students do spend the majority of their time focussing on their academic learning, their involvement in all areas of the school provides a holistic, values-based education which strives to develop them as individuals and as members of a global society.

We are very proud of our Middle School and would be pleased to welcome you on campus to learn more about us.

Middle School Principal

A day in our Middle School

Learning in Middle School

Our Middle School offers a robust and challenging programme for students in Grades 6 to 8 (aged 11–14 years), connecting academic subjects with a deliberate focus on social development and opportunities for leadership. Our goal is to develop students who have the ability to lead effectively when the need arises but who can also adapt to various roles within a team to promote the successful completion of a project, activity or service task. The learning programme provides structured opportunities for students to develop these skills in a wide variety of settings. 

Students are encouraged to apply themselves fully in all that they do and we offer them guidance and support in a positive and caring environment. Our teachers also act as role models, providing instruction in the lunchtime and after-school activities programme, supporting service initiatives and traveling on the outdoor education trips with their students.


All students have a laptop equipped with College-supplied software, and access to on-campus helpdesk support. Our online learning platform is used by students and teachers to manage their work, collaborate and submit homework. Learn more

School week

Students spend much of their day in the Middle School building, moving to specialist facilities and classrooms that are also used by the High School for subjects such as Visual Arts, Drama, Design and Technology, Music and PE. 

Classes remain together with their advisory group for the majority of lessons, except Languages other than English in Grades 6–8. In Grades 7 and 8 students are placed in mixed ability Mathematics classes and in Grade 8 English they are placed in mixed classes to widen their friendship groups.

School starts at 8am and finishes at 3pm, although many students will be involved in the Activities programme after school, and some may even be involved in sports training before school.
