Liverpool Life Sciences UTC students will come from a wide catchment area including all local authorities located within the Liverpool City Region (Liverpool, Halton, Wirral, St Helens, Knowsley and Sefton).
The UTC has the following admission number for the year 2014/15:
• 200 pupils in Year 10 • 200 pupils in Year 12
Process for Application:
The UTC will consider all applications for places.
If you are applying for a Year 10 place, you will need to complete and submit a form to your Local Authority. On receipt of your application form, we will contact you to make the necessary arrangements to do this.
Admissions for 14-16 year olds: Where fewer applications than the published admission number are received, the UTC will offer places to all who have applied. Where there are more applications than places, the UTC will use a random allocation of places to ensure a fair distribution and geographical spread.
Admissions for post 16 places: Students wishing to enter the UTC Sixth Form will be expected to have met an agreed minimum academic entry requirement. If students fail to meet their minimum academic requirements, they will be given the option of an alternative course choice.
Procedures where the UTC is oversubscribed: Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the admission number, applications will be considered following the criteria below.
1. Pupils with statements of Special Educational Needs where the UTC is named on the statement 2. Children in Public Care 3. Children residing within the six local authorities (Liverpool, Sefton, Halton, St Helens, Wirral and Knowsley) will be allocated through independently verified random allocation. 4. Children living outside of these six local authorities by distance with those living closer given preference, as measured in a straight line from the applicant’s home address to the front gates of the UTC using the Local Authority’s computerised measuring system.
Waiting Lists: Where in any year the UTC receives more applications for places than there are places available, a waiting list will operate until the end of the first term of the school year. This will be maintained by The UTC and it will be open to any parent to ask for his or her child’s name to be placed on the waiting list, following an unsuccessful application.
