UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park has received a SSAT Educational Outcomes Award

UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park is amongst top performing schools in England

UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park 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 10% 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.

Jessica Stevenson, Principal, UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, said: “I am incredibly proud of our students and staff, and our commitment to equipping young people with the skills and qualifications they need to go onto great careers. This award is testament to that.”

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 last month, is based on 2019 data provided by the Department for Education and Ofsted, and analysed by SSAT.

At the UTC, graded ‘good’ by Ofsted, students complete technical qualifications in computing, health sciences and sports science, 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. Organisations supporting the UTC include Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, employers on the Olympic Legacy Park, Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Sheffield.

UTCs are government funded technical schools that provide academic and technical qualifications to match the skills needs of regional employers, supporting economic growth and employment. Young people can join the UTC in Year 9 at the age of 13 or in Year 12 at the age of 16. Some places are still available for this September. Apply now at www.utcsheffield.org.uk
