Best Sixth Form results in the College’s history
With the introduction of new more stringent assessment at A Level, Uplands is delighted to announce that we have surpassed our best ever results from 2015, with an improvement in the number of students gaining the top grades, especially in facilitating subjects such as Chemistry, Biology, English Literature and History. Over 30% of grades awarded are at A*to A/Distinction* grades and students have achieved 55% at A* to B grade. Our A Level students have gained a B grade on average across their subjects, whilst our vocational students averaged a Distinction* (the highest achievable grade). Mr Collins, Headteacher, alongside Ms Thomas and Mr Tullett in the Sixth Form team would like to congratulate the students, teachers and parents for their hard work and dedication in achieving such results and we wish them well in the next phase of their lives.
Uplands’ students celebrated their success at GCSE and BTEC with 79% achieving a Good Pass (A*-C or 9-4) across their qualifications.
Happy Confident Successful
Uplands Community College is a special place to learn. Visitors to Uplands always comment on the calm, warm, friendly and purposeful atmosphere at the school. This atmosphere is born of the fact that we approach each other with respect, kindness and compassion within a culture of high expectations and aspirations.
The core purpose of Uplands Community College is to inspire confident learners in an ever changing world. We promote the development of all students, where the love of learning is nourished and where every child is known, cared for and guided towards a fulfilling adult life.
We believe strongly in a ‘growth mindset’ ethos, which supports every student to achieve their goals. As a truly comprehensive school, we understand this success can be achieved through dedication and hard work.
We encourage an ambitious attitude to learning where respect for one’s school and community; a readiness to learn; and a responsibility for one’s own learning and success are key to ensuring our core values of ‘respectful, ready and responsible’ are fostered and upheld.
