Welcome to Uplands Community College Sixth Form.
I am delighted that you are considering Uplands for your education after your GCSEs. Our aim is to provide you with high quality teaching whilst preparing you for the next stage in your education or future employment. We want every sixth form student to leave Uplands having achieved their full potential and being fully prepared to follow their chosen course or career path.
Beyond the classroom, we have a distinct focus on developing our young people into confident, articulate adults, ensuring that they understand their responsibilities as members of the local, national and global community. As well as supporting students in securing qualifications they are proud of, every teacher seeks to embed our ethos of Happy, Confident and Successful.
In 2018, we have seen yet another set of excellent sixth form results; with an overall pass rate of 95%, it was pleasing to see a similar 95% of those students wishing to continue into higher education find their place at university. For 2018/19, we are adding to this academic success through an expanding enrichment programme – culminating with a trip to Ecuador in 2020. This is a great time to choose our sixth form.
We are extremely proud that sixth form students from Uplands have been successful in gaining places at highly prestigious universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Durham, Warwick, Edinburgh and Kings College London as well as arts colleges and other Russell Group universities. Our students have successfully secured places to study subjects as diverse as Law, Spanish, Business, Aerospace Engineering, Mathematics, Illustration, Architecture, Sport Science and Equestrian Psychology.
We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have. We are confident that Uplands’ Sixth Form will provide you with everything you need to be successful in the sixth form.
Mr J. Cunningham
Head of Sixth Form
