Education like no other.

Education like no other.

UWC makes education a force to unite people, nations and cultures for peace and a sustainable future.

IB Continuum Programme

We are the only international school south of Bangkok fully authorised to offer all three International Baccalaureate (IB) programmes. Also accredited by CIS, our English-language day and boarding school is home to 470 learners ranging in age from 2 to 18 years.

Nursery (Early Childhood Education)

Nursery at UWCT is an age-appropriate, play-based programme that gives children time to explore, investigate and discover at their own pace. Our class sizes are intentionally small and all teachers have credentials in Early Childhood Education. Limited spaces are available for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Primary Years (PrIMARY School)

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) at UWCT is a concept-driven curriculum, designed around Units of Inquiry. With teacher guidance, students in the Primary School shape their own learning through inquiry, research, and reflection. The PYP culminates in a showcase of student skill at the Grade 5 exhibition.

Middle Years (middle / high school)

The Middle Year’s Programme (MYP) offers a unique approach to curriculum. It is designed to prepare students to be active participants in global society through eight subject groups. The MYP helps build academic and individual independence from Grades 6 to 10.

Diploma Programme (High school)

The Diploma Programme equips high school students for success at university and beyond, and is one of the world’s most vigorous programmes. At UWCT, we also offer the DP Courses route for students whose focus is split between academics and other passions. Many international students choose UWCT as their boarding school in order to complete the DP.

Experiential Learning

UWCT helps students further develop their autonomy and successfully navigate global changes. We balance academics with wellness education by embedding social-emotional learning and mindfulness (SEL&M) into our classrooms. We also embrace the breadth of the IB curriculum to ensure that students are exposed to language, natural sciences, social sciences, mathematics, service, physical and outdoor education, and the arts.

ACADEMICS

As an IB school, UWCT shares the IB’s aim to “develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

wellness education

With Social-Emotional Learning & Mindfulness, students learn to give themselves the breathing room they require to take in what’s happening in and around them, see it more clearly through a positive lens, and react more intentionally.

Service Learning

Our Service programme provides students with opportunities to put our values into practice, learn about themselves, foster empathy, and encourage our community to become attuned to the needs of others and the planet.

Education Outside the Classroom

At UWCT, learning extends well beyond the classroom; aiming to expose students to the incredible natural diversity of Phuket and beyond. The goal of EOTC is to foster a life-long intrinsic enjoyment of outdoor pursuits from Primary School onwards.

Sports & Activities

We offer a vibrant, exciting programme of competitive and non-competitive sports and activities. As an IB School, we strongly encourage participation for all; as well as individual aspiration, team achievement and personal excellence.

Language & Learning Support

In order to ensure that each student we enrol is set up for success, we work with parents and students to address language and specific learning difficulties by providing student-specific support. We are proud to also offer the Arrowsmith® programme.

Education like no other.

We seek to realise our highest human potential, cultivate genuine happiness and take mindful and compassionate action.

We’ve moved around a lot and with each move, we are always concerned about how our girls and our family would integrate into a new international school. The UWCT community opened its arms and its hearts to us right away removing any doubt about the choice we made. We are a UWCT family now through and through.

The time I’ve spent here with my friends – the late night talks, the exciting moments where we’ve just sat together with a guitar and sung for hours and hours, they’re just beautiful moments. We’ve had beanbags around the bonfire. We’ve had friendship bracelets for each other. It’s always felt like we had all the time in the world.

It’s almost impossible to describe the relief we’ve felt at finding Arrowsmith: it has changed our life. If you have a child no one can “pin down”, please look into Arrowsmith. It should be available to every child in every international school around the world. It has been our silver bullet, it might very well be yours too.
