A secondary school has won a Good Schools Guide Award for boys taking design technology at GCSE.

Uppingham Community College has been presented with this award by the Good Schools Guide for out-performing all other English schools in its category or displaying excellent performance.

The awards, which are in their eighth year, are based on a detailed analysis of the most recent examination results, and are designed to highlight consistently good teaching.

Principal Jan Turner said: “We are absolutely delighted to be acknowledged in this way for our excellence in design technology. This is a very proud moment for Uppingham Community College and we are sure it will inspire and encourage all pupils who are working towards their GCSEs. The department has long been recognised as a national centre of excellence and this award highlights the fantastic work of Mr Davies, head of design, and his team.”
