UCC Remains Closed

Due to the adverse weather and dangerous driving conditions, Uppingham Community College is closed today (Thursday 1st March).

Additionally, the majority of our school bus services were not going to be in operation today and the safety of our students and staff is of paramount importance. As ever, our site team will be working to make the school safe for students and staff in preparation for tomorrow. We will conduct an assessment of the conditions early tomorrow and communicate our decision by 7am. 

Year 11 drama students were due to participate in their practical exam today and this has now been postponed. The rearranged date will be at the examiner's convenience so students need to be prepared and ready for this when we are able to return to school. Mrs Perkins and Mr Rhodes would like their drama students to prioritise their learning of lines today in preparation for the rearranged exam. 

I would advise all other Year 11 students to use their time wisely today and ensure they complete some exam preparation work, along with completing any other school work that is a current priority. Students in years 7-10 should also make positive use of their time today by ensuring their homework is up to date and as it is World Book Day, it would be great if UCC students took some time to do some reading!
