We opened in September 2016, we were inspected by Ofsted in February 2019 and were pleased to be awarded good.
Key points from the report:
- Good teaching: Most students benefit from good teaching that enables them to learn effectively and be successful in their studies. Strong support is in place for students with special educational needs and/or disabilities and this is helping them to make good progress.
- Employer-led projects: Employer-led ‘real-life’ projects engage and challenge students. They benefit from a good and realistic experience in the areas of computing, health sciences or sport and acquire a wide range of employability skills.
- Above the national average results: In 2018, the proportion of pupils achieving a standard pass (grade 4) and a strong pass (grade 5) or better in English and mathematics combined was above the national average. The proportion of pupils achieving a strong pass in English language or a strong pass in mathematics was also above the national average. The progress of current post-16 students on vocational courses is strong and above the national average.
- Positive destinations: In 2018, all Year 11 and Year 13 students went into further education, training or employment. The rate of progression to higher education and apprenticeships is high. One third of the Year 13 students secured higher-level apprenticeships or employment and two thirds progressed to courses at universities, most linked to the UTC’s specialisms.

Parent View is an online questionnaire run by Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services, which asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child’s school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. Ofsted uses the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
By sharing your views, you will be helping your child’s school to improve. You will also be able to see what other parents have said about your child’s school.
