We’re the first school in the UK to specialise in science, engineering and health care for students aged 14 – 19. We combine outstanding academic education with specialist vocational qualifications, preparing our students for the world of work with a unique educational experience.
We partner with local businesses and universities to create specialised training, alongside teaching the traditional curriculum.
Key Stage 4 and GCSE options
As a specialist school, we don’t limit the options that you can choose to study in Year 10 – in fact, we provide all the national curriculum subjects, plus a whole lot more. Our specialised option choices support routes into medicine, animal care, health and social care, engineering, sociology and much more.
As a specialist school, we don’t limit the options that you can choose.
What is a UTC
UTCs teach specialist vocational qualifications, alongside traditional curriculum subjects. All UTCs provide the opportunity to specialise in certain subject areas – in our case, engineering, science and healthcare.
You’ll graduate from a UTC with a wealth of industry knowledge, thanks to guaranteed involvement with local enterprise and universities – giving you a competitive edge for entering the world of work or applying to university.
The Innovation Lab Experience
Careers, UCAS and apprenticeships
We promise our students either a job, apprenticeship or university place, once you’ve successfully completed your studies here. We’re known for it, winning the ‘Career Aspiration Award’ in Educate magazine’s recent awards.
In order for that to happen, exceptional careers advice, guidance and information for all students is essential. We do that both in-house, and by pointing you in the direction of independent advice and guidance, so you have the broadest range of information possible.
Extra curricular and enrichment
Our enrichment programme goes hand in hand with a strong and enviable UCAS application. We encourage students to take part in our fun, educational sessions in order for their skills to stand out from the crowd in their university entrance applications.
Leaders, partners and governors have invested heavily to ensure pupils experience industry and university quality techniques and equipment, engaging and inspiring learners and invigorating teaching.
