Students mention that the atmosphere at the UTC is purposeful and focused, but also friendly and vibrant. Students come to us because they want to learn and relish the opportunity to concentrate on their studies, alongside others with similar interests – whilst enjoying an extensive programme of personal and social development.

Through our enrichment programme, all students have the chance to develop themselves both personally and professionally, as well as pursue their interests. Each year we review the programme to ensure that it offers a selection of options our current student base will enjoy as well as gain from. Sample activities include:

  • Competitive sports including athletics, football, rugby and basketball participating in leagues and competitions
  • Individual Athlete Development
  • Activities promoting a healthy and active lifestyle e.g. Badminton, Fitness Induction
  • Coding clubs
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award
  • National Citizen Service
  • Amnesty International
  • UK Youth Parliament
  • Silver Surfers
  • Reader Leaders
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • And many more!

Through our rewards system, students are recognised for their work ethic, professional standards and employability skills.
