I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to University Collegiate School. I hope you and your child are excited about the next step in their education.

Here you will find useful information ahead of joining UCS; the transition booklet addresses key questions, allows you to familiarise yourself with our staff and provides activities to complete ahead of joining UCS in September. You will also find newsletters, a welcome letter from our Principal, Miss Nicola Glynn, and current year 10 students. Finally, there is a learning profile document which students are encouraged to complete and return to Miss Lockett (a.lockett@utcbolton.org) so that our teachers can begin to get to know our year 7 cohort.

We would like to ensure all students are aware of the Covid-19 updates in place throughout the academic day in September, full details can be found at End of term update July 2020 – year 7

You can take a virtual tour of the school on https://ths.li/XqWm84 and watch our YouTube videos on https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUBfFx-Ebv53YJW9C3KSJIw/.

If you complete any challenges in your transition booklet, you can post a picture online and tag #UCStransitionchallenge.

If you have any general questions, please direct them to Miss Abigail Lockett (a.lockett@utcbolton.org).
