We opened our doors in 2012 with an ambitious vision for how a diverse school in inner London could, with the support and inspiration of one of the world’s leading universities, inspire all of our students to fulfil their potential and achieve success, regardless of background.

Greta Munishi, Head Girl
Greta recently spoke about the importance of community at the Academy and how she intends to help other students: “During the years I have been at the UCL Academy, I have witnessed students have more ownership of their school community and of their learning. As Head Girl I want to help strengthen student voices, praise students achievements and help push those who can’t do that to their highest potential to do better. I never turn down an opportunity to help and support my peers in vocalising their needs and requirements. As someone who constantly asks people if they need any help, as someone who always has their arms open to everyone, as someone who wants to be successful in life”.
Inter-House competitions form an important element of Academy life, with students competing in many areas, whether to score the highest in the Accelerated Reader programme, to achieve the most House Points and to achieve victory in our annual Sports Day. The current House Points are as follows:
" Sponsorship of The UCL Academy allows us to provide access to new ways of learning for students and expose them to life at university supporting students to higher levels of attainment. "
" The UCL Academy is one of the best and most innovative institutions to have been set up within the English education system in recent years. "
" Personal development opportunities, especially the spiritual, moral, social and cultural strands are expertly woven into curriculum modules. "
" Around 40% of 6th form students now move on to Russell Group universities and our first GCSE results were well above national average. "
