UCTC invites you to the Chromebooks for Learning Show on June 26th. Come and see our inspirational use of technology as we take an innovative step forward into the future of teaching and learning. All welcome. Tickets are free.
UCTC is proud to have seven A level Biology students win recognition from the Society of Biology this year for their performance in the 2015 British Biology Olympiad. Silver medal winners were Thomas Michaelson-Yeates, Jed Mills and Matthew Warren; Charlotte Heath (also in year 13) won a bronze medal. Danielle Fothergill, Carlamarita Hazelgrove and Flavio Lima Bianchi in Y12 gained certificates of commendation showing great promise after just 4 months studying Biology at Advanced level.
Ben Sharp in year 12 and Tom Croft in year 10 have been selected to represent the UK Scout association at the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan this July.
This is no ordinary Scout camp. A World Scout Jamboree happens every 4 years, 25,000 (this time) young people from all over the world are represented (all but 6 countries in the world have scouts, 30 million worldwide).
Good luck to all 6th Formers in their exams. Exam Season has begun! Year 12 A-Level lessons resume on Monday, 8th June. Year 13 lessons end on Friday, 22nd May. Year 13/14 Leavers' Prom is Wednesday, 24th June. AS and A-Level Results Day is Thursday, 13th August
