High School, East Campus
Message from the High School Principal
What follows here is exactly what you would expect to see. Which school would not claim what we are claiming below? But if you would like to understand our thinking in more depth, please look at my blog, choosing the most relevant posts for your interests. However, if I can highlight for you to one post to start with, maybe try this one: 生き甲斐: The thing you're good at, that you love, that the world needs, and that you can be paid for. That should give you a sense of who we are. Please also come in to talk to us.
And now back to the programme…
Welcome to the High School at UWCSEA East Campus. We're so pleased that you are considering joining our school.
During the High School years (ages 14–18; Grade 9–12), students become fully autonomous learners with a well-formed and confident sense of their own identity. They learn the knowledge, skills and qualities that they need to successfully navigate the next stage of their learning, wherever that may be.
Our students are happy, engaged and appropriately ambitious. They embrace opportunity and challenge, and in doing so develop strong ethical leanings. We are very proud of them and the rich and vibrant community they create.
Our teachers are highly expert subject specialists with a deep and diverse range of experiences from around the world. They bring passion, energy and expertise to the classrooms, sport pitches and expeditions, and have staff-student relationships that are warm and supportive.
Whether joining us in Grade 9 for the two-year (I)GCSE courses, in Grade 10 for the Foundation IB course, or in Grade 11 for the two-year International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, students study a broad range of subjects which give them the depth and breadth to both pursue a passion and keep their options open.
I encourage you to explore the school and UWCSEA's distinctive learning programme through this website, our admissions materials and if possible, by visiting our campus. Thank you for your interest in UWCSEA.
