Uppingham Community College is a mixed secondary school located in Uppingham in the English county of Rutland.[1]

It was previously a community school administered by Rutland County Council. Uppingham Community College then briefly became a foundation school before being converted to academy status in April 2011. However the school continues to coordinate with Rutland County Council for admissions.

Uppingham Community College offers GCSEs, BTECs and vocational courses as programmes of study for pupils.[2] The school specialises in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), and has additional resources and programmes of study to support the specialism.[3]

History[edit]

The school opened as Uppingham Secondary Modern School. It became a comprehensive school when Rutland went comprehensive in 1972.
