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 outstanding school at its heart.
Ofsted has told us that our rapid improvement journey to Outstanding is unique nationally and 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 and we have been designated a National Support School and I have been made a National Leader of Education.
In four out of the last five years we have achieved record outcomes in our examination grades at all levels. In recent years our 6th form has doubled in size. Indeed many students are attracted to our successful 6th form from other schools in the area because of the excellence of our results particularly in the core subjects such as Physics and Maths.
