There is a Staff Training Day this Friday, 14 February, therefore no students are expected to be in school. Students will return after half term on Monday 24 February 2020.

Maisie, Computing

I’ve really enjoyed Computing, I wasn’t sure if I would in the beginning. I’ve learnt new skills that I can use outside of school. I’ve also been able to work with Rushy Meadow Primary School to design a game for children with special needs

Maisie joined UTC to help strengthen her skills in Maths and English.

She said: “I didn’t actually come to UTC specifically for the Computing specialism, I came to improve my Maths and English, the specialism was just an added bonus.”

She added: “I’ve really enjoyed Computing, I wasn’t sure if I would in the beginning. I’ve learnt new skills that I can use outside of school. I’ve also been able to work with Rushy Meadow Primary School to design a game for children with special needs.”

Maisie completed 8 GCSEs and a Level 2 diploma in ICT, achieving grade 8s (equivalent to a high A/low A*) in English Language and English Literature and a grade 7 (equivalent to an A) in Maths.

She said: “I did really well. I’m most pleased with English Literature as I wasn’t sure how I’d done and I’m planning to do that at A Level.

Maisie is now leaving UTC to continue her studies at All Saints Sixth Form, where she will be taking A Levels in English Literature, Maths, Business and History.
