Ullswater Community College is proud to provide a high-quality education for the community that we serve, encouraging a culture of aspiration and ambition. This very close and diverse community – known as UCC – has the highest of ambitions for all its students. Warm and honest relationships are at the heart of our work and are based upon genuine mutual respect.
We are a happy school – happy students achieve more than unhappy ones. Our hard-working and talented staff are truly child centred and work collaboratively to ensure that every student at UCC receives the highest quality of teaching and support.
Our key aim is to develop an aspirational culture and to encourage all of our students to challenge themselves, naturally in the academic curriculum but also in every other sphere of a truly extensive enrichment programme.
UCC is a place where every student feels equally valued and well known to their peers and staff. Learning in a lively and outward-looking community with a range of academic, cultural, sporting and social experiences, our students are ready and able to face the demands and challenges, the choices and changes of life in the twenty-first century.
Six fundamental principles guide all our strategic planning, organisation and operation:
We are fiercely ambitious on behalf of all our students, providing an educational culture that is inclusive, diverse and authentic. We are relentlessly self-critical in the pursuit of this culture. We will secure good levels of academic progress at every level of ability by providing the highest possible quality of teaching and learning and the most appropriate curriculum. We are inclusive and responsive to students’ needs to ensure that all feel valued and supported in their learning. We are a happy school – happy students achieve more than unhappy ones. We will be an active partner within the communities we serve, sharing our resources and expertise. Within these communities, we will promote lifelong learning and lifelong employability by enabling all to develop the knowledge, skills, enterprise and values needed to meet the challenges that lie ahead.
