Welcome to UWC Thailand

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

Education Like No Other

In commitment to the school motto of “Good Heart, Balanced Mind, Healthy Body”, UWC Thailand, a non-profit international
school on the beautiful island of Phuket offers a holistic, transformative, and rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum
education from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, including both day and boarding students.

Our 60th anniversary is a chance for us to celebrate and honour the inspiring changemakers who have blazed new paths for education, giving our students the tools and experience needed to become future peacebuilders. And to reflect on the individual and collective steps taken, both big and small, which have furthered the cause of peace and sustainability in the world.


Our Programming

UWC Thailand students benefit from our programming, grounded in mindfulness, outdoor experiential education, sports and service learning.


The goal of all International Baccalaureate schools is to create “inquiring, knowledgeable, caring young people who are motivated to succeed.” At UWC Thailand, we believe that learning comes from students engaged in the process of ‘doing’.

At UWC Thailand, we believe that a robust co-curricular programme helps to expand our students' experience and further builds community connections. To us, they are a vital part of student life and learning.

All schools attempt to develop the intellectual and physical growth of the child, yet an equally critical facet of childhood development—one that is all too often overlooked in schools—is the inner well-being of the child.

Outdoor Education

Our approach to education invites, encourages, and ultimately requires students to take initiative, the young people in our care learn to find their voice and develop a sense of agency—to feel that they can control their own lives and positively affect change for others.

Service Learning

As an integral part of our programme, students begin to engage in service activities in primary school; participating in beach clean-ups, campus-wide sustainability projects, and working within our local community to develop an understanding and a culture of giving back.

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 UWC Thailand community opened its arms and its hearts to us right away removing any doubt about the choice we made. We are a UWC Thailand 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.
