UTC Bolton welcomes applications from students wanting to join us in Year 9, 10 and 12. Making a decision to leave your existing school, teachers and friends is a difficult one. The application process is designed to help you make an informed decision about whether or not you want to join us.

Every applicant and their parents meet with a member of our leadership team to discuss your application, so that you can answer any queries or concerns. In addition we host regular taster events for new applicants to experience learning at the UTC with a Breakthrough workshop in either health sciences or engineering.
