What the school offers its staff

UCC is a great place to work, develop and grow. Our vision as a school is simple: "Everyone at UCC thrives in their learning, achievement and development" This applies to everyone in our school community and therefore a central strategy for us is to provide the conditions in which our staff can thrive in all aspects of their role in school. Considering this, we are serious about developing our staff and investing in their professional development. The approach we take is embodied by the following quote: “Train your staff so they are able to leave, treat them so they want to stay”. UCC performance The educational performance of UCC is very strong. Every year we achieve outcomes for our students that are significantly higher than the national averages. In 2018 and 2019, our Progress 8 scores classified us as ‘Above Average’, meaning that our students made very good progress in their education whilst at UCC. We are also equally proud of our inclusive ethos. We are passionate about our core values and we are just as focussed on our students becoming respectful, honest and kind human beings as we are about the examination outcomes they achieve. We are classified by Ofsted as a Good school. However, we are not motivated by the inspection framework, nor are we overly focussed on the accountability measures for schools. Instead, we work incredibly hard at building a strong team ethos, setting our expectations extremely high with our challenging curriculum, teaching students really well and caring for them in a compassionate manner. We believe if each of these areas are delivered to a consistently high standard then the outcomes our students achieve will be superb.
