Welcome from the Principal

As the Principal of the University Technical College Norfolk, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website.

The goal of UTC Norfolk is simple: to develop tomorrow’s engineering and technology specialists. To do this, we aim to ensure that our students have the skills, qualifications and experience to go to university or to take-up skilled employment. Now in our fourth year, we have done just this. 100% of our class of 2016 and 2017 are now studying at top universities, are employed or are working in well paid apprenticeships.

Our Vision and Mission

UTCN School and Sixth Form were set up to combat the lack of regional skills in the engineering and energy sectors. We aim to inspire our students to ensure that they excel in their future careers. Our mission and vision are designed to reflect the fact that our students will be the future experts in science, maths, technology and engineering.


To develop tomorrow’s engineering and technology specialists


Employer Supporters

As part of their study, students participate in projects with the UTCN’s employer supporters in real working environments, where they can apply their technical skills and creative thinking. As a school which specialises in engineering and energy sectors we have a variety of employer supporters who we are lucky to work alongside with in educating tomorrow’s engineering and energy experts.

What are University Technical Colleges?

University Technical Colleges offer 14-18 year olds the opportunity to take a highly regarded, full time, technically-oriented course of study. They are equipped to the highest standard, sponsored by a university and offer clear progression routes into higher education or further learning in work.


2017 Key Stage 4 (end of Year 11) results

UTCN Progress 8 Score (time at the UTC) +0.15

DfE Progress 8 score (includes three years spent at previous schools) -0.46

The DfE Progress 8 measure looks at student progress from the end of Year 6 to the end of Year 11. As UTCs only have students for 20 out of the 60 months of this period, we calculate our own Progress 8 Score using national recognised GL Assessment Data.

40% of pupils got a grade 5 or better in English and Mathematics (Basics)
