Christian, Computing

“I’ve had a great time at the UTC. I’ve really enjoyed both the academic and technical learning, and the opportunity to taking part in other projects."

Christian Marriott is making history by being the first student from UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park to secure a place at one of the world’s top universities.

The 18-year-old is going on to Mansfield College at the University of Oxford to study a Degree in Mathematics after a top set of grades in his academic and technical qualifications.

Christian achieved grades A*, A* and A in maths, further maths and computer science. He also gained a distinction in a computing technical qualification. He said: “It was a bit of a shock when I opened my results and really exciting to know I’ve got my university place.”

Christian joined the UTC in Year 12 at the age of 16. He was inspired to apply to the University of Oxford after taking part in a maths summer school, organised by the United Kingdom Maths Trust, when he was 16. This involved spending a week at St Anne’s College, Oxford.

He explained: “If it hadn’t been for the summer school, I wouldn’t have considered applying to Oxford. It sparked my interest in maths and I fell in love with the university as it felt so different to anything I’d known – it just felt right being there.”

As part of his studies at the UTC, Christian was also part of a team selected to represent the UK in the Vex Robotics World Championships. The competition involved a team of UTC students performing a series of technical tasks involving a robot that they had designed, built and programmed.

He added: “I’ve had a great time at the UTC. I’ve really enjoyed both the academic and technical learning, and the opportunity to taking part in other projects. The Vex Robotics competition helped me develop team working, problem solving and time management skills.”

Dr Sarah Clark, Principal, UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, said: “We are delighted that Christian has secured a well-deserved place for mathematics at the University of Oxford, which is a first for UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.”
