Students, parents and staff celebrated Uckfield Community College’s best ever GCSE results in 2015: 72% of students achieved the benchmark 5A*-C including English and Maths and overall 81% of students achieved 5 or more A*-C grades.
Early morning rain failed to dampen the spirits of students from Uckfield Community Technology College who achieved the best ever set of A level results with 52% A*-B grades and a massive 81% of all entries graded at C or above. 25% / a quarter of the grades achieved were A* or A.
Saturday 14th of November hosted our amazing annual Christmas Indulgence, a fantastic opportunity to visit the school to see and buy the work produced by local artists and craftspeople and to have some christmassy fun! With a huge range of gifts on display, crowds flocked to UCTC to grab a bargain and to take advantage of all of the other activities on the day, which ranged from family photoshoots, tombolas, games and lucky dips, and a chance to visit Santa and his elves, all arranged throughout the lower rooms of the school and in the hall and dining areas.
The annual UCTC Masterchef competition took place this week with a selection of chefs from across multiple year groups taking part in a bid to show off their culinary skills. With a wonderful array of ingredients being provided by the Rotary Club, the standard of dishes this year was very high.
Friday 27th November is a full INSET day and UCTC will be closed on that day.
We again have two spaces on the Battlefields trip scheduled for February 2016. Students should contact Mr Harvey / Reception if they wish to take these places.
