We know that Year 11 pupils have been working hard to get the best grades they can in their GCSEs at school to secure a college place at the highest level possible. The process of how those grades will be awarded is yet to be fully configured, however, we would like to reassure you that we will be looking beyond the awarded grades.
Therefore, no one will be disadvantaged, and all applicants will have a place to study at UTC Warrington in September 2020.
Once the GCSE grades are awarded, we will work with students and parents/carers to ensure they are on the right course at the right level. Where students may have missed the level of course they applied for, we will consider predicted grades, discussions with a student’s previous school and review the progress made during the initial weeks at the UTC.
This will ensure that all students are on the right course.
If you haven’t already attended a 1-1 meeting, please do not worry. Our team will be in touch when it is appropriate and safe to do so. This is likely to be via telephone, however, we will write to you with details of enrolment at a later and more suitable date.
UTC Warrington will ensure you are kept up to date over the coming months and we are committed to ensuring the transition to studying here is seamless.
If you haven’t already applied, please use our online application form to submit an application and we will be in touch with further details.
In the meantime, please keep in touch with us through our usual channels, including Facebook and Twitter (@UTCWarrington). As soon as is appropriate and safe to do so, my team will make contact via telephone to offer any support and guidance and answer any questions you may have.
Rest assured that UTC Warrington will still be here to support you and your family in the coming weeks and months. In these uncertain and changing times, it is more important than ever to support each other and be kind.
If you or any member of your family have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on: 01925 737067 or e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in studying at University Technical College Warrington and I look forward to working with you in due course.
Mrs A Downing
University Technical College Warrington
