You are here

Welcome from the Headteacher


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. We prepare our students in four ways:

1. Curriculum

Our curriculum is relevant. We work with local and national employers and universities to make sure our curriculum gives our students the right skills for the future. As 100% of the students who have left us have gone onto employment or university, we must be on the right lines!

2. Facilities

We have a fabulous £10m site which contains £1.3m of specialist engineering and scientific equipment which provide many unique learning experiences for our students.

3. Employers

We have the support of a significant number of local and national employers and the sponsorship of the University of East Anglia. These organisations support the delivery of the curriculum, provide work experience, offer first-rate careers advice and help our students develop the skills that employers actually want.

4. People

We are a small school (currently 340 students) where you will be treated as a real person, not a number. We have a talented team of teachers and other professionals and we will get to understand what motivates you and help you to fulfil your potential and help you to find your future.

If reading the above excites you, then I would urge you to come and visit us at one of the open events. A new and exciting future could be closer than you think!
