Message from UTC Sheffield City Centre

We have increased student online learning using Teams as the predominant method of delivery. This may be supplemented with face to face delivery on site in the coming weeks, for those students who require additional support. All students have been sent information on how to download and set up Teams. Should any student have difficulties with this, please contact admin@utcsheffield.org.uk and we will address your query as soon as possible. Therefore, our offer of face to face teaching, in line with government advice is that we will invite key worker/vulnerable/students who cannot access online delivery.

Please see the Letters page and the Covid-19 Update page for more information.

In these unprecedented times, we are sorry that we are unable to run the parents evening on 15 July 2020.  If you have any pressing concerns, please contact admin@utcsheffield.org.uk

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.
