Our Curriculum

The UWC Maastricht Primary School is a member of the Dutch International Primary Schools
in the Netherlands. Currently, we provide education to over 300 children aged 4 to11 from
across the globe.

The UWC Maastricht Primary Curriculum is made up of the following subject areas:


•  Interdisciplinary, Concept-based Inquiry Learning
   (Social Sciences, Sciences, Arts, Literacy, Maths, ICT)
•  Language, Literacy and Communication
   (English, Dutch, Mother Tongue)
•  Mathematics and Numeracy
•  Digital Literacy and ICT
•  Music
•  Physical Health Education

Units of work and the curriculum we use are under constant review to ensure they are appropriate for our students, fit the UWC Maastricht model of education and ensure that students are adequately prepared for the Middle Years Programme or equivalent.

Our school’s mission is to work towards peace and a sustainable future. We aspire to equip the students with the life skills needed, including conflict resolution and critical thinking, to ensure their social and emotional well-being. In addition to the academic curriculum, class teachers are responsible for the pastoral curriculum that helps students with their personal development. We encourage students to further develop their talents through participation in after-school Community Clubs and the Music School.
