Fantastic A-Level Results!

The Energy Coast UTC students and staff are delighted with fantastic 2017 A-Level results.
 
The Energy Coast UTC is delighted to announce a fantastic set of results for Year 13 students this year, particularly in Engineering.
All students at the Energy Coast UTC study engineering. Every student who studied triple engineering achieved a triple distinction* (equivalent to three A* grades) with some talented students achieving 6 A level grades overall. Almost every student has already secured a place either at university or on an apprenticeship programme with just a couple of students waiting to hear about apprenticeship placements. The UTC engineering results were in the top 10% nationally last year, and this year the results are even better.
 
“I would like to thank all our staff for their excellent teaching and support of our students, our students for all their hard work, and employer partners and parents for their commitment. Working together we have secured the next step in an exciting future for every one of our young people.”
Cherry Tingle – Principal
 
Some notable successes are:
 
Stephen Gascoigne who achieved triple Distinction * in engineering (equivalent to 3 grade A*  A levels), distinction * in Business Studies (equivalent to 1 grade A*  A level), grade A in maths A level and Grade C in physics A level. This equals 6 A levels at high grades which is an absolutely incredible achievement.
Joshua Donald who achieved a triple distinction * in engineering (equivalent to 3 grade A*  A levels), a distinction * in Business Studies (equivalent to 1 grade A* A level), and a grade C in applied science A level. This equals 5 A levels, a wonderful achievement.
Chloe Kirkbride who achieved a double distinction * in engineering (equivalent to 2 grade A*   A levels), a merit in business studies (equivalent to a grade B at A level)  and a grade C in applied science A level. This is 4 A levels.
Rebecca Telford who achieved triple distinction* in engineering (equivalent to 3 grade A* A levels)

 
 

1:1 Technology Enhanced Learning Scheme

We are pleased to announce the Energy Coast UTC are working in partnership with the Learning Foundation and HP to provide a 1:1 technology enhanced learning scheme for its students. The scheme will see every student been given a laptop to use both here at the college and from home.

Here at the UTC we understand the benefits of IT in learning and the additional areas this allows us to focus on to ensure that your child excels in their studies and academic achievements. With the scheme we would be looking at introducing a number of initiatives to support your child's development these include: the use of Engineering and Construction software packages for use at home: AutoCAD and Solidworks suites, the introduction of a VLE (Virtual Learning Environment), a student portal and the use of our Office 365 packages.
