Message from the Head of Campus

Graham Silverthorne, Head of UWCSEA East

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to our East Campus. 

In a country that is internationally renowned for leading development and achievement in global education, UWCSEA has been at the forefront of the international school community for over 40 years. We are driven by the UWC mission and we offer a programme that is globally connected and richly embedded within South East Asia and beyond. Our bustling, vibrant campus is currently home to over 2,500 students from 75 nationalities, speaking 59 different languages. 161 members of our student community are boarders, including 48 UWCSEA and UWC National Committee scholars.

We have created our campus to be sustainable and to allow for the most innovative of educational practice. At UWCSEA East, we believe that anything is possible. In our central location in the fast-developing community and business hub of Tampines, we provide outstanding facilities for academics, the Arts, sports and professional learning. We have developed as a community hub in our own right - families learn together with students and teachers at East Campus. It is a truly exceptional and extremely safe environment.

At the heart of your experience at East will be the deep feeling that you are at a United World College. Throughout our campus, there is a palpable feeling of positive energy, commitment to action, discovery, innovation and leadership. Our students are engaged in their learning, supported by our enthusiastic and caring staff. Walk onto East Campus at any time from early morning to early evening and you will find activity, engagement and fun. Whether you meet our youngest Kindergarten students learning about schools in Cambodia or a Grade 11 student planning for an independent project week, you will sense a genuine commitment to embrace challenges and to take action. Our students learn to take responsibility for their own lives and we see them graduate with the intention of making an impact on their world.

Academics are very important to our families and they are important to us. Our graduates score outstandingly well, year on year, in examinations. However, a UWC education is about much more than academics alone. Our students leave the College highly qualified, confident, independent and committed to making a contribution to society. They leave us equipped to deal with the challenges of an uncertain world.

As you explore our learning programme and the different sections of our school on these pages, I know you will gain a sense of both our mission, our vitality and our focus. I encourage you to visit us in person and experience UWCSEA. You will find a warm welcome here.
