The Uscars, UCTC's celebration of film-making talent takes place at the Uckfield Picturehouse on Thursday 23rd June at 2pm. Tickets are available from the Media department. This is an opportunity to view some of the superb work A-level Film & Media students have produced this year. Everyone is welcome.
Yet again, UCTC have been invited to the prestigious South of England Show as part of the Countryside Hub. This year the theme is 'Sheep' and students (and staff!) have been working hard to produce an amazing display of felted clothing, a knitted blanket and 'Dave' our pom-pom sheep. We have also incorporated Micro-bits to light up the clothing with sensors.
Uckfield Community Technology College has won two prestigious awards for exceptional performance. The national Schools, Student and Teachers Network (SSAT) analyses a very wide range of data from all schools nationally. It does so in a more comprehensive way than school league tables because it includes every grade for every student. Its analysis shows that Uckfield Community College is in the top 20% of schools nationally in the two most significant categories.
Please be assured that no UCTC students on our Enrichment Week trip to Wales are involved in the incident in the Brecon Beacons currently being reported in the news.
