We are an 11-18 school in the lovely Cumbrian market town of Ulverston surrounded by fells and beaches on the scenic Furness Peninsula. Our oversubscribed school is a very popular choice for parents who tell us that their children feel safe, make good progress in their learning and that the school is well led and managed. Students, teachers, parents and governors regularly express their pride in their school.
Our students of all abilities and backgrounds come from communities across the area. Although we enjoy International School status, we are particularly proud to be Ulverston’s secondary school and we know that the town is proud to have an exceptional school at its heart.
We are seen as a school that retains the traditional values and standards that have characterised successful schools through time which are coupled with a desire to explore innovative new practices in education. We have shared our success with other schools.
Our school is not an exam factory although we also seek the best examination outcomes for all our students.
Over the last seven years our ethos has been founded on our adherence to Victoria Values which are agreed and upheld by all our students, staff, pupils and parents. We also Pledge to offer students activities and challenges which will enhance their characters.
We are regularly oversubscribed in our High School. In recent years our sixth form has doubled in size. Indeed many students are attracted to our successful sixth form from other schools in the area because of the excellence of teaching particularly in the core subjects such as Physics and Maths.
School Angel works with lots of big shopping brands in the UK which have agreed to donate a portion of the profit, they normally make on your shopping if you use the School Angel website to visit their shop. You are guaranteed to only pay exactly the same price, for whatever you buy, but UVHS will also receive a donation.
