Overview

Uffculme is a completely comprehensive school offering high quality educational opportunities to students of all abilities and aptitudes. Attainment is outstanding but it is not just about results. We aim to produce young people fit for the demands of a complex, global society. We have a proud tradition in outdoor education, musical, dramatic and sporting enrichment and value community service alongside high achievement.

In 2010 Uffculme converted to become one of the first new style Academies. We believe this will allow us greater freedoms, more flexibility and enhanced resources to enable us to continue to develop, improve and aim even higher for every one of our students.

Uffculme is a happy school where students and teachers enjoy working together. We have a strong ethos based on core values of respect, tolerance and courtesy. We set high standards of behaviour and actively promote self discipline, self respect, resilience and responsibility. Through these values our young people gain the confidence to take their place in society and develop the skills and attitudes to enable them to succeed in their chosen paths. On 1st July 2013, Uffculme Primary School joined the Uffculme Academy Trust effectively creating an ‘all-through’ School.
