UTC Sheffield City Centre Wins National Award Recognising Top Performing Schools in England

UTC Sheffield City Centre has received national recognition for being one of the highest performing schools in England for technical learning.

The UTC has won a Schools, Students and Teachers (SSAT) network award for ranking in the top 20% of non-selective schools for student attainment at post 16 in applied general subjects.

The SSAT Educational Outcomes Awards celebrate the high standards of teaching and learning, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors in schools across the SSAT network.

Alex Reynolds, Principal, UTC Sheffield City Centre, said: “To be ranked as one of the top performing schools in the country for technical learning at post 16 is testament to the amazing work of our students, staff, employers and governors. We strive for technical excellence. Training young people in the high level skills that the economy needs is at the heart of everything we do.”

Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT, said: “This success is down to the superb learning and teaching, outstanding support and inspirational leadership of students, staff, parents and governors. You have made a huge difference to the lives of the young people in your school. Thank you.”

The SSAT Educational Outcomes database compares all state-funded schools in England and the highest performing schools in a range of key measures. The award, announced on March 18th, is based on 2019 data provided by the Department for Education and Ofsted, and analysed by SSAT.

At the UTC, which has also just been graded ‘good’ by Ofsted, students complete technical qualifications in engineering and advanced manufacturing or creative and digital media, and GCSE and A Levels. They work on employer-led projects, developing skills related to their subject specialism as well as team working and problem solving.

The UTC is equipped with cutting edge industry standard facilities. Employers supporting the UTC include AES Seal, Bauer Media Group, Fernite, Festo, Finger Industries, Henry Boot Construction, Hive, Inspec Solutions, Lavender International, Rolls-Royce, Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield Live, the University of Sheffield, Siemens and Sumo Digital.

The latest statistics show that 100% of students progressed onto university, employment or further training last year including high quality apprenticeships with employers such as Jaguar Land Rover, Boeing, British Aerospace and Amazon.
