Joining us in Year 12.
Prospective Students Joining us in Year 12.

If you would like to join us in September 2022 please click on the button at the top of this page. Once we recieve your application we will invite you to a post 16 interview. 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, conditional on achieving certain GCSE grades.

September 2022: Year 12 Entry

Thank you for accepting a place at UTCN for this September. Whilst this is a very uncertain time for all, we do still expect the 2022 academic year to start as normal and we look forward to you joining us then! In the meanwhile, there are a few items of information which I hope you will find useful:

Induction Day – for students

We normally run an Induction Day for all new Year 12 students in July. The purpose of this day will be to familiarise you with travel to UTCN, the UTCN site layout, the curriculum and expectations and to start to make new friends. This will take place on Thursday July 14.

New Parents’ Information Evening

We will be holding an information evening for parents/carers of new Year 12 students 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 you prepare for your post-16 studies, we have put together a Summer Work Pack. This will help you gently prepare for Year 12. The pack will also outline the stationery and equipment that you will need in September. These packs are personalised and will be issued at the Induction Day.


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.

Dress Code

The Sixth Form Dress Code is available on the school website under ‘Joining Us’. Many students have asked if students could try on samples of the PPE gear (Personal Protection Equipment) prior to purchasing – details will be sent out nearer the time.

If you have any queries about PPE, please contact V&J Knitwear on 01553 772563 or schoolwear@vj-knitwear.co.uk


If you have an identified Special Educational Need, 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 Hill-Smith via email on zoe.hill-smith@utcn.org.uk


Most students chose their KS5 options at interview. We will send you a copy of these for you to check after Easter.

Term dates

These are available on our website. Wednesday, September 7 is the first day of term for new students.

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
