About Us About UTCN.

‘University technical colleges (UTCs) are government-funded schools that offer 14–18 year olds a great deal more than traditional schools. They teach students technical and scientific subjects in a whole new way and are educating the inventors, engineers, scientists and technicians of tomorrow.’ Baker Dearing Trust

There are currently 49 UTCs across England with others in development.

What is University Technical College Norfolk?

A Message From
The Headteacher.
Are you ready for the future?
More importantly, are you ready for YOUR future?


The world is changing – fast! But is your current school preparing you effectively for this new future? Are you learning how to solve problems, program robots, use 3D printers and advanced machinery? Or are you studying a curriculum that would prepare you nicely for the 19th Century?

Here at UTCN, we exist to develop tomorrow’s engineering and technology specialists. And, if you look at our Destinations Table you will see that is exactly what we do.
