About Us

University Technical colleges (utcs) are government-funded science and technology academies developed with employers and universities to focus on the skills the uk needs for the future.

Welcome to UTC Sheffield City Centre! We are a purpose-built 13-19 specialist academy in the heart of Sheffield – a city synonymous with creativity, making and innovation.

Students with a passion for Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering or Maths can study one of two exciting pathways alongside their GCSE or A Level subjects:

  • Creative & Digital Media
  • Engineering & Advanced Manufacturing

Our unique combination of technical and academic curriculum is complemented by a personal development programme which brings out the best in each student and enhances their softer employability skills.

Our success is measured in the great results and destinations that our students achieve. We are proud of our track record in enabling 100% of our Year 11 students to progress on to positive destinations, including further studies, apprenticeships or employment. Our Year 13 students stand out from the crowd with their technical specialisms, enabling them to secure sought-after higher and degree apprenticeships as well as competitive university or college places.

We bring education and business together in a way that gives our students the very best preparation for high quality careers, working with the region’s top employers, many of them global names, including Bauer Media Group, McLaren Automotive, RAF, Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Sumo Digital and Warp Films.

Our Higher Education Partner, Sheffield Hallam University, and our employer partners are represented on the governing body and work closely with the UTC and the students to develop their employability skills and provide work placements.

For students who want more than just qualifications, we provide an all-round education focused on future progression. We look forward to meeting you at one of our events – whether virtual or at the UTC – and to sharing with you the great opportunities that UTC Sheffield City Centre provides to students in Years 9 to 13.
