About Us

Welcome to UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park! We are a purpose-built specialist academy and sixth form located on the Olympic Legacy Park in Sheffield, a rapidly developing hub of scientific and technical innovation.

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.

Students can study different combinations of GCSEs, A Levels and technical qualifications for exciting pathways in:

  • Computing
  • Health Sciences & Social Care
  • Sport Science

Our unique combination of technical and academic curriculum is complemented by a rich personal development programme and extensive employer engagement to help each student develop to their full potential.

Our success is measured in the great results and destinations that our students achieve. All of our Year 11 graduates progress on to further studies, apprenticeships or employment, with most choosing to stay on at the UTC for sixth form studies. Our Year 13 graduates have gone on to some of the best universities in the country, as well as higher or degree apprenticeships and employment.

We bring education and business together in a way that gives our students the very best preparation for high quality careers, working with top employers and university partners, including the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, Palo Alto Networks, Medilink UK, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Sheffield Eagles, Sheffield Sharks, The University of Sheffield and Westfield Health.

Our higher education sponsor, 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. I look forward meeting you at one of our events – whether virtual or at the UTC – and to sharing with you the great opportunities that UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park provides for our students.
