A Christmas Letter From The Principal Details Monday, 18 December 2017 Dear Parents and Carers, This year has been a really good year at the UTC with wonderful exam results which were well above national averages and almost 90% of our leaving students gaining high quality apprenticeships in the surrounding area, with the remainder going to university. I would like to thank all our students for their hard work this year. The vast majority of our students work hard, take advantage of all the opportunities the UTC has to offer, and achieve well. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank parents and carers for their support, only by working together will our young people achieve their potential. I would also like to thank our staff who work tremendously hard to support our students and regularly go ‘above and beyond’ in their commitment to ensuring the very best for the young people in our care. Without the dedication of our staff our students would simply not succeed anywhere near as well as they do. A final thanks must go to the employers who work with us. They make the UTC an exciting and different place to learn and we especially thank Morgan Sindall for sponsoring our uniform and 1-1 maths and English tuition as well as supporting us with employer projects and Outward Bound. This term Nuvia, Iggesund, Shepleys and the Rotary Club have supported us with real life employer projects, Jacobs has sponsored our new DEC! Course, Balfour Beatty and Doosan Babcock have interviewed sixth form students for the Duke of York Award, Kaefer have delivered interactive workshops to our year 10 & 11 students and numerous other employers have attended our world of work day or provided advice and assistance to our students. The number of employers our students have worked with really is too numerous to list here, so thank you to all of them. To read the full letter please click here.
