One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world

Primary School


On behalf of the whole primary team I would like to welcome you to the Primary section of United World College Maastricht. Our aim is for your children to be excited to come to school every day, to be happy and motivated in their learning and to share their experiences, ideas and cultures so that we all learn with and from each other.

As an international school our population is transient. No matter how long students are with us, we aim to give the very best United World College experience and hope that the values and friendships fostered here, and the commitment to peace and sustainability, remain with them for the rest of their lives.

Today’s world is marked with the irony of one constant and that is change. This provides schools with the added challenge of preparing students for an unknown future.  We continue to strive to make sure that all our students have a range of different learning opportunities to question, explore, create, engage and reflect. Therefore giving them a greater chance of not just surviving in this complex world but thriving as well.

We also rely on you - the parents - to be part of this journey and work with us in partnership to ensure the very best for your child.

Tanya Surawski
Director of Primary School
