Culture & Wellbeing

Our culture programme actively engages students both locally and nationally, through a series of sessions designed to build upon aspects of culture, faith, finance, Latin and the local community, and our students’ role in it. Our wellbeing curriculum incorporates a varied programme of physical education classes for our students, including dance, gymnastics, field games and invasion games.

PSHE

The UTC invests in Jigsaw  – a whole-school approach to PSHE / Health & Well-being, which includes statutory RSHE (England DfE 2019). Every year group studies the same learning theme at the same time, really spiralling the learning up through the age groups. Read more here

Enrichment

Enrichment activities are key to building our students’ experience of the world outside the classroom. Designed to enhance applications for future study, apprenticeship and job applications, our enrichment activities are fun, compelling and diverse, allowing students to build their knowledge whilst building their confidence.

Project-based learning is also a core element of our innovative educational approach. Each week, all students attend two periods dedicated to technical projects, where they work in teams on industry inspired projects. With access to industry-level laboratories and environments, our students can excel in the science and healthcare sectors, through close mentoring and support from our award-winning industry partners and sponsors.
