Amazing exam results
On Thursday 23 January 2014 the Department for Education published its annual performance tables for secondary schools. These are available on-line at http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/performance. Ullswater Community College compares well with other schools in Cumbria and the nation as a whole.
us an opportunity to measure this success against the national picture. We are, naturally, very proud of these achievements and of the hard work of all pupils and their teachers.
In 2014 we will do even better. The current Year 11 indicators suggest that we will make further gains and hopefully the performance tables will reflect the continued progress of the school against the national picture.
A massive “well done” to all those students and teachers who contributed so successfully to this terrific achievement.
Saturday 18 January saw 28 runners from UCC competing for Eden District in the inter-district cross-country championship. In desperate conditions all the runners competed superbly, with five qualifying to represent Cumbria in
Durham on 2 February 2014. James Salt won the Year 7 boys’event, with Luke Hunter 5th and Joe Newby 7th; all three qualify to run for the County Minor Boys. Luke Brown in Year 9 qualified to run for the Junior Boys with a superb
7th place and Flora Blackburn made the Senior Girls county team by coming in 9th in her race. Congratulations to all of them!
