Teaching and Learning

Providing exceptional student experience

Deliver a holistic, values-based education that develops young people as individuals and as members of a global society.

Today, teaching and learning require more adaptation and innovation than ever before. Investing in our teachers and the continued development and enhancement of our educational programme allows UWCSEA to provide an unparalleled learner-centric experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. 

Gifts support pioneering learning programmes, innovative staff professional development and experiential learning initiatives that will equip students for life. 





“Reflecting on that professional afternoon and the student workshops, our staff felt that they could see a direct connection between the skills being taught and these filtering in a very positive way into the children’s performance. The level of their performance was lifted, as was their technical understanding. It was an extremely positive experience.”
