Uplands is a different school in many ways – and we are very proud of that. We are a co-educational family school that takes great care in creating a friendly, community driven environment, where all our children are known and given their space to grow. In many ways we offer a fresh, welcoming approach. This is a culture of education that has defined who we are since our beginnings in 1928.
Uplands is a school steeped in history and is thriving today, with over 140 girls and boys in our Pre-Preparatory School, 360 in our Preparatory School and 500 pupils in our College, all located on the same, beautiful 110 hectare site. We believe in a well-grounded, ambitious education which seeks to pass on to all of the pupils the four age-old pillars of our community: integrity, respect, relationships and faith. To achieve this, we provide a vast array of activities so that all can find a lifelong passion. We enable our children to look beyond what they feel is possible, both academically and outside the classroom; we encourage an atmosphere of friendship, collegiality and mutual respect, whilst also retaining the love of competitiveness. We require all our pupils to engage with the wider world, in preparation for their adult lives. All of these aspects help every boy and girl to gain a genuine sense of self belief that will provide the strongest possible foundation for a happy and successful future.
Ours is a way that says come and be you. At Uplands we encourage our children to get better, to be braver and to take some risks. Our aim is to provide robust academics alongside a much richer experience. With clear strategic goals, we want our students to be confident in themselves.
Without doubt, the best way to get to know us, is to come and visit us – to see our picturesque campus and to meet some of our pupils. You are guaranteed a very warm welcome.
