Studying in Key Stage 4 at UTCW is a little different from a traditional secondary school. Most students are ready to be given more responsibility and to be treated like an adult. Students will learn in a unique environment and develop partnerships with local and national businesses.
Throughout their time at UTCW, students will build knowledge and contextualise their learning through our network of employer partners. This is done through work experience opportunities, guest lectures, and employability embedded throughout the UTC.
UTCW offers some of the very best facilities for Science, Engineering and Technology in Warrington and the wider region, because we believe that our young people deserve the chance to excel in STEM subjects by accessing the very best equipment available.
In 2019, Ofsted graded the UTC Good in all areas. The inspectors were particularly impressed with the quality of teaching across the college, the positive attitudes of our students and the destinations they go into upon leaving the UTC.
- The % of graduates securing a STEM apprenticeship is over five times the national average.
- All who wanted to have gone to a leading UK university and 100% of those are studying STEM degrees.
Specialist and expert teachers in every subject will bring their industry experience to the foreground and instil in you the passion and commitment they feel for their subjects. They will expertly lead you through the exam requirements, coursework assessments and support you in making the next step in your chosen career. At UTCW, we believe in achievement, excellence and kindness. Learning extends beyond the classroom and the exam board. Our real-life projects, high quality work placements and specialist business engagement will prepare you for a future career in industry by honing the skills that employers want to see.
