Joining us in Year 10.
Prospective Students Joining us in Year 10.

If you would like to join us in September 2022 please click on the button at the top of this page. Once we receive your application we will invite you to a pre-admission meeting. At this meeting we will discuss your interest in UTCN and your future career plans and interests. If UTCN is a suitable option for you we will make you an offer.

September 2022: Year 10 Entry

Below, we set out a few important items of information which I hope that you will find useful.

Induction Day for students.

The purpose of this day is to familiarise students with travel to UTCN, the UTCN site layout, curriculum and expectations and to start to make new friends. Induction days are on July 12 or July 19, 2022.

New Parents’ Information Evening

The information evening for parents/carers of new Year 10 students will be held in September. At this event, UTCN systems and procedures will be explained and parents will have the opportunity to meet key staff including Form Tutors.

Summer Work Pack

To help your son/daughter prepare for their studies at UTCN, we are putting together a Summer Work Pack. This will help them gently prepare for Year 10. The pack will also detail the required stationery students will need to get before they start in September. We will issue these at the Induction Day on July 12 or July 19, 2022.


In August First Buses will announce the bus timetable for September 2022 for the UTCN contract buses, this will be published on the school website. We anticipate that this will operate at the same, or similar times, to the current service. This service allows students to travel from Norwich Rail Station, Castle Meadow or St. Stephens to UTCN.
Bus passes for the UTCN contract bus will be available to purchase on uniform collection days. The pass is available through the ‘First Bus App’ but must be purchased directly from UTCN. Once payment has been made a code will be issued to activate the pass as an ‘M Ticket’, further details on how to purchase bus passes will be provided at the Induction events.


The uniform list is available on the school website under ‘Joining Us’. Uniform will be available to order at various times in 2022 – details will follow.
If you have any queries about uniform, please contact V&J Knitwear on 01553 772563 or schoolwear@vj-knitwear.co.uk


If your son/daughter has an identified Special Educational Need, has a medical condition or you feel that they will need extra support in lessons, it is important that you make contact with our SENDCO, Mrs Loveridge via email on catherine.loveridge@utcn.org.uk


Most students chose their KS4 options at interview and these will be checked and confirmed at the Induction Day with your son/daughter.

Term dates

These are available on our website here. Parents and students should note that Wednesday, September 7 is the first date of term for new students.

Student Recruitment

We are fully subscribed for Year 10 entry in September 2022 and we are placing all new applicants on a waiting list for places. We very much hope that your son/daughter will be able to start with us in September, however, if for any reason you no longer wish your child to take up their place with us, we would be grateful to hear from you at the earliest opportunity so that we can give your child’s place to one of the students on our waiting list.

We look forward to seeing you soon, but in the meantime, if you have any queries at all, please contact the Admissions team via email at admissions@utcn.org.uk
