Welcome to UCC
Ullswater Community College is an exciting and vibrant institution where students can enjoy a wide range of opportunities in an environment where great teaching results in excellent outcomes. Our progress has made us an increasingly popular choice within this community and continues to generate new ideas and aspirations for the future.
We are proud of our college and, naturally, we hope that what it offers is attractive and important to others. We are very proud of our students too; we expect a lot from them and we believe that the college has much to offer in return.
The purpose of this website is to inform you about the curriculum, facilities and organisation of the college and – perhaps more importantly – to give you a flavour of our ethos and underlying philosophy. However, no website can fully capture the nature of life in a college and parents of prospective pupils are very welcome to look around when the school is in session. Please contact the college to arrange an appointment if you would like to find out more.
