Headteacher’s Welcome

I am immensely proud to be Headteacher of our values led family school. We are passionate about providing young people with opportunities to develop their own individual unique talents and be the best that they can be. USH students are truly inspiring; they are respectful, eloquent, and full of character.

Whether your child is practically, technically or academically minded, there is a pathway for them which enables them to thrive and enjoy their time at school. We invest heavily in trips, extra-curricular clubs, performing arts, sport, and career guidance so students have a wide range of opportunities during their time with us. Providing young people with moments of excitement and enjoyment, moments they will remember forever, is so important to the USH community.   

We are here to achieve, and we are proud of our strong tradition of exceptional academic performance. USH is a proud member of SSAT Leading Edge Group – a national award and membership which is exclusively for high performing schools. Our caring and aspirational staff are completely dedicated to guiding our students to success. They have a proven track record.  

We have high expectations of our students. Excellent behaviour is fundamental to ensuring learning takes place. We treat people well, we demonstrate good manners, and we are kind. At USH we celebrate success and support our students in developing perseverance and resilience. We take our work very seriously and are committed to being the best school in the region.  

I hope you find all the information you need on our website. Please call us if you want more information or to make appointment to come and see the USH family.
