A Super-Curricular College

At Uckfield College We Are Proud To Be A Super Curricular School

What is the difference between what we had before, which was an amazing array of fantastic extra-curricular options, to being a super-curricular school?

  1. All students must do something (before school, lunch or after school). Participation is being gradually rolled out, starting with Y7, 9 & 12 in 2021/22 with Y7,8,9,10, 12 and 13 in 2022/23.
  2. Students will work towards more Awards / Qualifications than in a normal extra-curricular activity. These awards and qualifications will give students evidence of their knowledge, skills and character.

At Uckfield College our students are:

  • Able to think for themselves
  • Innovative
  • Social activists: engaged, responsible, knowledgeable, tolerant, outward-looking
  • Aspirational
  • Future focused on careers and employability skills
  • Ready, willing and able  to make a wholly positive contribution to improving society

We believe that our super curricular provision is a key part of achieving this aim. As a result of participating in our diverse range of wider opportunities students will work towards long-term goals, be aspirational learners, foster deep concentration, stimulate their minds and develop employability skills.

We strive towards preparing students to be adaptable within an ever changing world. Our super curriculum nurtures students’ engagement, personal responsibility, knowledge and tolerance towards being outward-looking social activists. As a result, students from Uckfield College will be ready, willing and able to make a wholly positive contribution to improving society.

Super Curricular opportunities take place before school, during lunch and after school we will be publishing our full provision map in October. This provision is being gradually rolled out, starting with Y7, 9 & 12 in 2021/22. Certain departments.
