Meet Our Team

At Uckfield College we are a community of dedicated staff, committed students and supportive parents. We are passionate about learning and we set ourselves extremely high standards in everything we do.

We are a large community with about 1600 students on roll, 120 teaching staff and more than 30 permanent support staff. We want to make getting in touch with the right people in our community easy for you and so we have listed key contacts below.
