‘The gym at UTC is great, I really think it helps with learning. We’ve also got state of the art computers and a virtual reality lab that we’ve used for biology.’

Horse riding enthusiast Georgia joined UTC, not only to study sport but, because of the employer and university links the school has.

Georgia, who has been riding since she was two, said, ‘I really enjoy sport and have a passion for horse riding, I have my own and have taught her everything. I’m hoping the UTC will help me towards my goal of either becoming a large animal vet or equine physiotherapist.’

Since starting UTC Georgia has been impressed by the facilities: ‘The gym at UTC is great, I really think it helps with learning. We’ve also got state of the art computers and a virtual reality lab that we’ve used for biology.’

She continues, ‘The best thing about UTC is the teachers, they actually spend time helping you one to one.’

As well as her studies at UTC Georgia also volunteers as an ambassador for sport helping at open evenings: ‘Normally I’ll do a speech for parents explaining why I chose UTC, what I think of my experience so far and then I’ll take people round to tour the facilities.’

For part of her sport course Georgia is studying a unit in coaching and has, herself, coached her classmates: ‘I’ve done two different coaching sessions. The first one was about gymnastics and the second team building, I found lots of exercises for that and it turned out to be quite mentally challenging, when I gave instructions people had to do the opposite or shout out the opposite.’

When asked what she would say to others considering joining the UTC Georgia said, ‘I’d say come and look, see if it’s for you because it’s a really good place to come!’
