We are delighted to introduce you to Unity City Academy (UCA), the most improved school in Middlesbrough! With a 98% 5A*-C pass rate, the best in the town, the academy has a proven track record in ensuring students make strides in education and fulfil their optimum potential.

Academic achievement for everyone is at the heart of all that we do and we are delighted with our improvements during the past five academic years. In the most important measures of 5A*-C, including maths and English, our percentage pass rate has improved from 18% in 2008 to 48% in 2012; a 23% improvement on last year and 8% above government target. For the past four out of five years we have gained national recognition as one of the most improved schools and academies in the country.

Whatever your child’s skills and interests, the academy has a great deal to offer; students are driven to achieve academic success, develop their creativity, excel on the sports field and encounter a plethora of new experiences in a safe and enjoyable environment encouraged by a team of dedicated and experienced professionals. Our recent success is built on the excellent partnerships the academy has developed with parents, carers, local Primary Schools and the wider community, enabling our students to achieve examination success and the personal confidence to enter the world of further and higher education as they progress to life long careers. At UCA we believe that “Every Child Matters”. Ofsted recognised the academy as “a place where students have good personalised care, support and opportunity.”
