Learn about UCL Academy at Town Hall meeting
16 April 2013
A Town Hall meeting has been planned so that interested parties can discuss UCL's involvement in the Swiss Cottage-based secondary school.
UCL Academy Town Hall meeting
Tuesday 30 April 2013
16:00 – 17:00
Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Third Floor, Wilkins South Cloisters
UCL is the first university in the country to be the sole sponsor of an academy. We have taken this step because we believe that by sharing facilities, expertise and providing support to teachers and pupils, we can bring about a fundamental improvement in the educational experience of students in the school and beyond.
The UCL Academy opened in September 2012 with 180 students in Foundation and 125 students in Level 3. It will reach its full capacity of 1,150 students by the autumn of 2016. The academy is based in Adelaide Road in Swiss Cottage, north London. Its new building, designed by architects Penoyre & Prasad, has been purpose-built to support the groundbreaking curriculum and pastoral activities that the school offers.
A Town Hall meeting is planned for Tuesday 30 April 2013 to provide members of the UCL community with the opportunity to hear from Principal Geraldine Davies and her team, who will provide an insight into the school, its values and ethos, the curriculum and the school’s innovative approach to teaching and learning.
In addition to increasing awareness of the UCL Academy, the meeting aims to:
- Share ideas and best practice in approaches to teaching and learning
- Explore ideas and ways in which UCL can best fulfil its role as sponsor
- Discuss ways of blurring the boundaries between secondary and higher education
All are welcome.
