Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Update

Here at Uppingham Community College we are a Licenced Provider of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. The present situation is that Mrs Thomas will be relinquishing her DofE responsibility after 25 years of working with the Award. All students that are currently enrolled on the Award will be supported by Mrs Thomas until they complete their Award or leave UCC at the end of Year 11. Please ensure your son or daughter has signed up for one of the expedition dates, submitted paperwork and payment as required. Bronze Practice / Final Saturday 23rd June – Sunday 24th June
Bronze Practice / Final Saturday 30th June – Sunday 1st July
Silver Practice Friday 29th June – Sunday 1st July (Leaving UCC at 4pm on Friday 29th June)

Bronze Final Wednesday 18th July – Thursday 19th July
Silver Final Friday 7th September – Sunday 9th September (Leaving UCC at 7.30am on Friday 7th September)

Mrs Thomas is unable to offer any other Expeditions so it's imperative that students sign up to the dates offered.

The tennis competitions are on the following dates: Tuesday 12th June – Rutland Primary Tennis Thursday 21st June – County Year 3/4 Tennis Finals Both nights will be running 3.25pm – 6.00pm here at the UCC on our tennis courts.
