In a year heralding the arrival of significantly tougher A levels in most subjects, Uplands is very proud of our comprehensive intake’s outcomes. A quarter of all entries were awarded the very top grades in their course; we are once again delighted to see so many of our Year 13 successfully gain university places at some of the best colleges in the UK. Similar success was experienced across the full spectrum of grades, with further students already gaining apprenticeships and employment as a result of all their hard work. We wish all our students nothing but the very best for the next chapter of their lives.
Headteacher Liam Collins also wishes to congratulate the staff on their professionalism and dedication in implementing the new A level specifications.
