Uffculme is a completely comprehensive school offering high quality educational opportunities to students of all abilities and aptitudes. Attainment is outstanding but it is not just about results. We aim to produce young people fit for the demands of a complex, global society. We have a proud tradition in outdoor education, musical, dramatic and sporting enrichment and value community service alongside high achievement.
In 2010 Uffculme converted to become one of the first new style Academies. We believe this will allow us greater freedoms, more flexibility and enhanced resources to enable us to continue to develop, improve and aim even higher for every one of our students.
Uffculme is a happy school where students and teachers enjoy working together. We have a strong ethos based on core values of respect, tolerance and courtesy. We set high standards of behaviour and actively promote self discipline, self respect, resilience and responsibility. Through these values our young people gain the confidence to take their place in society and develop the skills and attitudes to enable them to succeed in their chosen paths. On 1st July 2013, Uffculme Primary School joined the Uffculme Academy Trust effectively creating an ‘all-through’ School.

Uffculme Academy Trust is a multi academy trust (MAT) working across Devon and Somerset. It was born of the partnership between Uffculme Secondary School, an outstanding 11-16 comprehensive, and Uffculme Primary School, which is the nearest and biggest of the secondary school's eight feeder schools.
The history of Uffculme Academy Trust
The founding school of Uffculme Academy Trust (the Trust), Uffculme Secondary School, has been a successful, high performing school with an outstanding Ofsted rating for many years. The school became a Grant Maintained (GM) school in 1993 and transferred to a Foundation school in 1998 when GM schools were abolished. When the opportunity arose for outstanding schools to convert to Academy status in 2010, Uffculme was one of the first schools to do so.
This history of independence from the local authority, whilst maintaining strong collaboration with it, informed the ethos of Uffculme Secondary School, the Academy which it became and, in 2013, the Uffculme Academy Trust which grew from it to include Uffculme Primary School. The Trust's support for Uffculme Primary School enabled substantial school improvement to change from an undersubscribed to an oversubscribed school in less than two years and to achieve impressive KS2 results in 2017.
The MAT is a single organisation which enables collaboration across schools in order to improve and maintain high standards in education. It is responsible for the good governance of schools within the MAT and accountable for the performance of each school.
The MAT's mission is to provide outstanding educational experiences to all the children and young people who are educated within the Trust.
