Term Update


A warm welcome to University Technical College Bolton in its second year of operation. It has been a delight to welcome so many new students this September.
We are rapidly approaching the end of the first term and much has been achieved by students and staff in establishing personal learning journeys towards the promise of a university place, employment or further learning for every student successfully graduating.

Staff are in the process of setting targets with students on the basis of their performance in a range of cognitive ability tests. You may be aware that these are used to set interim targets until schools provide details of Key Stage 2 SAT results. As you can imagine not all schools are keen to cooperate in providing this information.

The Start of our Academic Year & Eid-al-Adha

Unfortunately, the opening of UTC Bolton this academic year has coincided with the dates announced for Eid-al-Adha late last week.    We feel that closing the school at this pivotal time in your child’s journey would be detrimental to their transition in joining our family or starting in their most important terminal examination year.  Consequently, UTC Bolton will remain open on Monday 12th September 2016.

Term 6 2016 Update

As ever so much has been packed into this last term that a single letter can hardly do justice…from Alton Towers to our first Sports Day…dodge ball to orienteering at Rivington. Our building has also hosted the University of Bolton’s Degree Congregations for 2016. Our students can truly picture the journey from GCSE’s right through to their university graduation and beyond.

Year 10 students had a busy final week as they participated in the ‘Build My Future’ Conference.  UTC staff and students worked very closely with a team from All Together to compile a programme which incorporated an enterprise challenge, a wide range of masterclasses and presentations from visiting speakers including entrepreneurs such as Brett Warburton (Executive Director of Warburtons), human resource professionals and leading scientists such as Professor Snezana Djordjevic from University College London. Students profiled their individual strengths and potential career options and received expert guidance on university choices, apprenticeship programmes, making employment applications, interview technique and CV writing.

Term Update

Another busy term has passed us by and it seems like only yesterday that we began our journey to outstanding and beyond by opening in September 2015.
As promised we organised some additional Parental Engagement Evenings to provide students and their families with an overview of Target Setting, Assessment & Reporting as well as detailed guidance about how parents can support students in their studies at GCSE and Advanced Level. Those parents that attended found the evenings informative and the resources excellent. The materials will be available shortly on the website.

April 2016 Update

Thank you for supporting the recent Parental Engagement Evenings. The feedback provided was most informative.

The vast majority of parents indicated that they were happy with the current model for Parental Engagement Evenings i.e. meeting Academic Mentors in October and meeting subject teachers in April. However, we will move the April meeting forward to March to provide more timely information about progress.

Medicus

I hope you are progressing well in your academic studies and that you are finding UTC Bolton a school that meets your expectations.

You may be aware that I have been engaging with two medics; Dr Lamia Zafrani and Dr Zakhi Zafrani who delivered one of the Medical Series Lectures on Tuesday 15th December 2015 and through this engagement, we have devised an intensive three-day development programme called Medicus. The programme is exceptional and mimics what is delivered by professional training organisations in providing an advantage to students wanting to study medicine.

End of Term 1

Thank you for your attendance at last night’s Parental Engagement Evening and the time spent completing our questionnaires.

The strategy for the event was for you to meet your child’s Academic Mentor. This is much more than a form tutor. They are your first point of contact in relation to any concerns or worries that you or your child may have about UTC Bolton.

The Right Choice for your child

New research released today by the Baker Dearing Educational Trust shows that for two thirds (66%) of parents their biggest fear is that their child will not find a job when they leave education. Nearly half (48.1%) of parents said they felt stressed about their child’s education and 80% of parents believed the education system needed to change to reflect 21st century working Britain.

Showcase

Friday 4th September 2015 marked an important day for UTC Bolton. After two years of careful planning and meticulous preparation we welcomed our first cohort of students. The students looked particularly impressive as we welcomed them through the gates on Rassbottom Street into the heart of the University of Bolton’s campus.  Please note that the Rassbottom Street entrance is a temporary arrangement until the public realm drop off zone and car parking is constructed.
