Uckfield students celebrate UCTC being in the nation's top 100

Government minister heaps praise on UCTC

Uckfield Community Technology College (UCTC) is one of the Top 100 Most Improved Schools in the country.

The government-awarded accolade is based on GCSE results over the last three years (2011 – 2013).

Everyone at the college has received a letter from the Minister of State at the Department for Education, David Laws.

‘Shining testament’

He wrote: “It gives me great pleasure to congratulate you on the excellent improvement in GCSE results for your school over the last three years, from 2011 to 2013.

“Your school has proven to be one of the top 100 in England showing the greatest sustained improvement in the percentage of pupils achieving five or more A*-C grade GCSEs, including English and Maths.

“The results are a shining testament to the hard work and success of your staff, governors and pupils.  I would like to offer my thanks to you and all at your school for your pursuit of the highest standards of educational achievement.”

College headteacher, Hugh Hennebry, said the sustained improvement was due to the challenging expectations, student-centred care and passionate teaching.

“We are very proud of the team effort, the enormous support from our parents and the hard work put in by our students.” he said.
