Secondary News:
The end of the 2014-2015 academic year is fast approaching, with only three weeks remaining. It
is an extremely busy time of year for all involved; staff, students and parents. Please ensure that
students do not switch off earlier and that they attend classes until the last day of the school year,
Friday 19th June, when they receive their final academic report.
The Year 13 Graduation Dinner last Friday was another highlight of the year, with family and
friends celebrating the success of another Uplands cohort. It was full of many laughs, many tears
and a lot of reminiscing about their time at Uplands.
There was another excellent article in The Telegraph Education Section last week, which again
drew on the advantages of taking the IB Diploma as opposed to A-Levels. It highlighted that the
number of IB Programmes offered around the world had increased by 50% in the past five years
and reiterated that, it develops the student as a whole and it cultivates the attributes that help
them become lifelong learners. It continued with,
A key advantage of the IB is that it is accepted by universities worldwide. In the UK, in the
past few years it has become much more widely known and recognised, to the extent that some
universities have lowered their offer for IB students. Please click on the below link read more:

After 4 weeks of intense learning, on Tuesday morning there was an atmosphere of excited frenzy
as everyone in Primary helped the Year 6 students set up their group displays for the exhibition.
The exhibition opened with singing and skits portraying important messages about our
responsibilities in sharing and caring for the world we live in. Parents were then invited to visit
the displays on a variety of topics and learn from the students as they shared their knowledge.
Year 6 students should be very proud of all they have achieved. The quality of their research and
displays combined with their confident and articulate communication skills was recognized by
all who shared in the exhibition. Well done Year 6, you showed us what capable, confident and
knowledgeable students you are! We hope parents and Year 6 students will join us on Friday, 12
June for High Tea at the Rasa Sayang Hotel as we celebrate the completion of the Primary Years
Programme in style!
Today we hosted 28 students and 24 staff from the Hearing Impaired School. This visit was
initiated by the Year 3 children and supported by the entire Primary School. We are sure the
children had a memorable day at Uplands!

Exam and Result Information


A big congratulations to our Year 13 students who completed their IB Diploma examinations last week,
culminating in an exceptional Graduation Evening on the Friday. Some have already departed for far-off
lands, with others to follow shortly to their varied courses and universities. Back home here at Uplands,
our Year 11 students will continue their IGCSE examinations in the weeks to follow, after a weeks study
leave, culminating with the Media Studies exam on the 15th June. It has already been a long and
exhausting exam period, with our students showing remarkable resilience throughout their busy exam
schedule. The spotlight this week has been on our Year 10 and Year 12 students who have been taking
their end of year Mock Examinations it is an important time for validation and reflection at the midway point in their IGCSE and IB Diploma Programmes respectively. Furthermore, the students experience
examination protocols, ironing out some of the anxiety and uncertainty of taking formal exams. Whether
its learning to jiggle a little less, breathing a little more, remembering that transparent water bottle, or
handing in that mobile phone lingering in their pocket as the last examination regulations are being read
out, it is an integral part of experiencing the Mock Exams, beyond the essential study and preparation.
Depicted below, a rare opportunity to capture our Year 10 Design & Technology students showcasing
their talents during Tuesdays afternoon exam.
