Uxbridge High School was first awarded Technology College status in June 2002. This award is a reflection of the efforts that the whole school has made to raise its standards and our continued commitment to that objective.
Technology College status provides additional funding for the school. This funding is used to employ staff, both teaching and support, provide additional equipment and resources and to support activities within the school and local community.
We have developed positive links with our local community and support a range of projects relating to lifelong learning. Participants in our programmes range from 8 to 80 years of age. Examples of these are free adult education classes in ICT, support for local community centres and extended schools clubs for younger children.
We work closely with local primary and secondary schools, sharing our expertise and supporting them to develop their technology provision. If you would like further details about any of our current programmes, please contact the school office.
The school development programme, in particular, brings enhancement to three key curriculum areas of the school: Design and Technology, Mathematics and Science. Each of these areas has rigorous examination and development targets for which the additional funding is intended to help them to meet. The good practice in these areas is then disseminated throughout the school.
