Official recognition for UCS partnerships

UCS has double reason to celebrate the annual ISC (Independent Schools Council) Partnerships Week – which runs between 27th November and 1st December – after two of the Senior School’s collaborative projects received official recognition from the organising body.

As an educational Foundation, UCS is committed to developing strong and meaningful partnerships with state schools as well as other organisations in the local community. Partnerships Week is an occasion to celebrate this mutually beneficial work which is documented in the recently published UCS Partnerships & Community Review.

This time there is the added fillip of seeing two of the various UCS initiatives included in the ISC’s 2023 Celebrating Partnerships booklet, launched to coincide with Partnerships Week. UCS’s Maths mentoring programme and university preparation events were both selected and feature on page 10 of the latter publication.

UCS had been invited to submit a number of case studies for consideration, and gained official endorsement for the Maths mentoring run in collaboration with Richard Cobden Primary School and also the university application preparation organised for UCS pupils along with students from London Academy of Excellence (LAE) Stratford, Michaela Community School, UCL Academy and Westminster Academy.

The ISC decision constitutes a welcome commendation for the efforts of all UCS staff members involved in partnerships work. Partnerships with state schools enable the sharing of expertise, best practice and facilities to the benefit of children in all participating schools.

The Independent Schools Council represents over 1,400 independent schools in the UK and overseas, educating more than half a million children annually.
