Vision and Values


An outstanding technical and academic education for 14-19 year olds where every student, through personalised learning and clear goals, will stretch their boundaries and learn more than they thought possible in order to create the next generation of scientists, healthcare practitioners, engineers and entrepreneurs.

Prepare tomorrow’s citizens today.

Brokering student aspirations to achieve the promise – a job, apprenticeship or university place available to every student when they successfully complete their programme of study at the UTC.

Venture above and beyond outstanding towards a genuine ‘World Class’ status.


Education should open minds.

All students are different and these differences are valued through diversity.

The enjoyment of learning and the building of self-esteem are paramount to raising standards, and the extent to which schools can benefit young people is dependent upon the ability of the school to motivate students to learn effectively.

Every young person and their work must be seen to be individually valued in order to foster the self-esteem necessary to promote positive attitudes to learning and participation in the life of the community.

Every student is known. It is our desire to understand how each individual student works and learns best, know what inspires and motivates them, allied with the promise of the right support and challenge throughout their learning journey in order to broker the promise.

Finding your passion changes everything but you must seek a growth mindset.

Success has clear requirements and requires challenging goals.

Personalised intervention to deliver agreed learning goals.

Teachers of students not teachers of subjects – facilitating the accumulation of knowledge, understanding, skills and competencies that contribute to life-long learning.

Education is for life and character education is fundamental to success.

Life is what you make it.

We are a learning community.

Excellence for all through equality, innovation, opportunity, inclusion & achievement.
