Welcome from the Principal

As the Principal of the University Technical College Norfolk, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website.

The goal of UTC Norfolk is simple: to develop tomorrow’s engineering and technology specialists. To do this, we aim to ensure that our students have the skills, qualifications and experience to go to university or to take-up skilled employment. Now in our fourth year, we have done just this. 100% of our class of 2016 and 2017 are now studying at top universities, are employed or are working in well paid apprenticeships.

We are being contacted almost daily by employers offering opportunities to our 2018 cohort. If you are a young person interested in a career involving engineering, science, maths or computing, there has never been a better time to join us!

We own a fabulous site and a £10m construction scheme has provided us with a fantastic 21st century learning space. In this building, we have £1.3m of specialist engineering and scientific equipment that provides a unique learning experiences for students. A school is, of course, much more than bricks and mortar and we have a huge team of people working to ensure UTCN is a success. We have the support and sponsorship of a number of significant employers, the sponsorship of the University of East Anglia and the backing of the TEN Group.

You’ll find a wealth of information about UTCN on this website, however, the website is no substitute for actually getting a flavour of what UTCN can offer. Therefore, I would encourage you to attend one of our future events or presentations and come and talk to the people involved.
