Joining us in September 2019? - Year 10

If you would like to join us in September 2019 please click on the button at the top of this page.  Once we recieve your application we will invite you to a pre-admission meeting.  At this meeting we will discuss you interest in UTCN and your future career plans and interests.  If UTCN is a suitable option for you we will make you a written offer.


1. Acceptance - if you decide to accept our offer, you have a place with us.  As the year progresses you will be invited to the  following events:

2. Induction Day – for students

We will be holding an Induction Day for all new Year 10 students on Tuesday, July 9. It is important that you attend this if at all possible. The purpose of this day is to familiarise students with travel to UTCN, the UTCN site layout, curriculum and expectations. The day will start at 9.00am and will finish by 3pm. During the day, students will take part in activities relevant to their chosen courses and confirm their options. Students should wear smart business dress for this day and lunch will be provided.

Please email us on to confirm your attendance.

3. New Parents’ Information Evening

On Thursday, July 11 at 6.30pm we will be holding an information evening for parents/carers of Year 10 students. This event is aimed at parents/carers and students do not need to attend, but the opportunity will  be available for them to try on uniform. During this meeting, UTCN systems and procedures will be explained and parents will have the opportunity to meet key staff. 

4. Summer Work Pack

To help you prepare for your  studies, we have put together a Summer Work Pack. This will help you gently prepare for Year 12. These packs are personalised and will be issued to you on July 16. If you cannot attend then, they will be posted out to you.

5. Admission Form and Home School Agreement

A list of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and the dress code be found here. Students can try on and order PPE and uniform at the Induction Day.
