Greta Munishi, Former Head Girl (2021/22)

Greta spoke about the importance of community at the Academy and how she always wanted to help other students: ā€œDuring the years I was at The UCL Academy, I witnessed students have more ownership of their school community and of their learning. As Head Girl, I wanted to help strengthen student voices, praise students achievements and help push those who couldn’t do that to their highest potential to do better. I never turned 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 lifeā€.


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. "

University College London

" 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. "

Lord Adonis

" Personal development opportunities, especially the spiritual, moral, social and cultural strands are expertly woven into curriculum modules. "

Challenge Partners

" Around 40% of 6th form students now move on to Russell Group universities and our first GCSE results were well above national average. "
