A UTC is very different from a school, focusing on technical skills and knowledge, employability, and personal development. It is rare for a new educational institution, especially one like ours with a unique curriculum and professional approach to learning, to achieve ‘Good’ across all categories in its first inspection.
This achievement at UTC Warrington demonstrates that the technical education we offer at Key Stage 4 and Sixth Form is of high quality and that we are successful in preparing students for the world of work and helping them secure their future careers.
Our journey began in 2015 in the pre-opening phase of the college. This Ofsted judgement shows how much progress we have made in delivering an excellent UTC experience for our students.
Mike Houghton, our Chair of Governors, in offering his congratulations, stated that:
“The Ofsted judgement confirms what we have known for some time. We are a good college, delivering a high quality STEM curriculum and providing amazing career prospects for our students. This judgement marks a significant milestone in our journey and provides a platform for the next exciting stage of the college’s development.”
The staff, students and governors of UTC Warrington are delighted with this judgement and we look forward to working with all of our students and parents/carers in the next steps of our exciting journey.
