What makes us different?

As a UTC we are different to other schools.  Students choose a specialism from Business, Computer Science or Engineering and then decide what additional subjects to take alongside this such as A-levels, IBCP, T-Levels and professional qualifications.
Our close business relationships ensure our students learn the skills required to succeed with regard to higher education, apprenticeships and employment. A UTC education will give each student a headstart on whichever career path they choose.
Our college feels more like a workplace than a school offering access to the very latest technology, all sharing a similar passion to succeed.
