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.
Sometime ago Ofsted told us that our rapid improvement journey was 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.
In five out of the last six years we have achieved record outcomes in our examination grades at all levels. 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 our results 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.
