2020 – In January 2020 we scored ‘Good’ in our second Ofsted inspection.

Liverpool Life Sciences is a good school, and we are really happy that this continues to be recognised by Ofsted. It was a pleasure to be able to show the inspection team the things that make us exceptional, our incredible team, our fantastic kids, our innovative lab spaces, our work with employer partners. We are delighted that they recognised again the professionalism, ambition and success of our young people through not only their academic achievements but their journey on to life changing destinations.” Says Jill Davies, Principle of the UTC Life Sciences.

Our latest Ofsted inspection found that UTC continues to raise the aspirations of our students, preparing them well for further education and future careers in life sciences. The UTC prides itself on providing students with opportunities to grow through experience with prestigious employers and expert mentoring and this was reflected in our latest report.

Our students enjoy their time at the UTC, flourishing in a caring and supportive environment.

“We are absolutely committed to creating life changing opportunities in our school for our young people. Our latest Ofsted inspection confirms the Liverpool Life Sciences UTC is not only a Good school, but also one where we prepare young people for their future with ambition, professionalism and expert advice and guidance. We are very proud of the continued hard work of the team.” Says Nigel Ward, Chief Executive of Northern Schools Trust.
