The Uplands difference is that our holistic educational philosophy teaches our pupils how to take their studies further and rise to the intellectual challenges that they will encounter in their later lives. Indeed, we excel in delivering an engaging and globally relevant curriculum for a diverse pupil body. This is achieved through a skills-based approach that promotes a culture of learning, creativity, critical thinking, social growth, inclusion (transformation and diversity) and talent realisation. Pupils benefit from building effective relationships with an inspired, collaborative and innovative staff.

Our classrooms are well-resourced and reflect an attention to ICT and mobile device technology to support and enhance learning. Despite moving with the technological revolution, literacy and numeracy skills remain fundamental to all that we do.

We challenge our pupils to develop their intellectual curiosity, to ask questions, to broaden their knowledge and intellect, and to be aware of the world beyond the School. At Uplands we believe that the very best education can only come from being part of an outstanding community of pupils – pupils, teachers and parents.

We are proud of our rich and varied curriculum; one that develops the potential of all our pupils and provides the building blocks for them to go out and make a difference.
