We are delighted with their achievements and commend the hard working teachers who have inspired and supported these young people through their two year journey.

  • Congratulations to all Prize Winners!

    date posted: Thursday 23 Oct 2014

     

    The UCL Academy would like to congratulate all Prize winners who received an award at the Prize Giving Ceremony held on Wednesday 22 October 2014.

    Thank you to all students, parents and guardians who attended. We hope you all enjoyed the night as much as we did!

    Outstanding performances were given by a number of students including Sonal Jayasena playing Shostakovich on the Piano, South African community song Tshoshokozi by the school Choir and poetry readings by Val Borba and Zana Blakcori. Also, it was great to hear all parents, students and teaching staff getting involved and singing the UCL Academy song together.

    Principal Geraldine Davies expressed her pleasure at being able to publically recognise the achievements of all students. It was great to see so many of last year’s Level 3+ students attending the ceremony.

    We would also like to thank our guest speaker Vivienne Parry OBE, Vice Chair of UCL’s Council for sharing her fascinating story and for personally congratulating each of the prize winners.  Vivienne Parry told students of how she – a self-confessed clumsy UCL science undergraduate – went on to become the presenter of the BBC prime time Science programme ‘Tomorrow’s World’. Her distinguished television, radio and press career provided entertaining stories that proved that broadcasting and filming are not always as glamorous as they appear. Her lasting message to the students was that just as science had opened the door for her to a broadcasting career and incredible opportunities such as hosting the G8 conference last year; it could be the key for them. But opportunities need to be actively seized not passively awaited.

    A great time was had by all!!!

  • CIOB and Capita offer fantastic opportunities for UCL Academy students

    date posted: Thursday 16 Oct 2014

    UCL Academy students recently took part in a meeting with Academy sponsors CIOB and Capita. The event was held on Thursday 2 October at the Capita offices in Moorgate for the UCL Academy Sustainable Architecture Group. The group is currently designing an Eco classroom in full that may go on to be developed at the Academy.  This was the first of many collaboration opportunities that will provide the knowledge and expertise from major businesses to the raw talent of our students. A lot of the students in the group hope to follow a career in architecture or Engineering so it is a fantastic opportunity for them. CIOB and Capita will be assisting UCL Academy by delivering the Design, Engineering and Construct (DEC) curriculum.
