What makes us unique?
We are a brand new engineering specialist school for 14-19 year olds, with entry into Years 10 and 12. We offer an innovative and powerful blend of high academic standards in a practical environment, so our students have the qualifications and skills to thrive in the future economy. Our students are highly employable, with pathways into high-value careers with partners including universities and major employers.
We asked our parents what they would say to those looking at the UTC.
“From the very first look at South Bank Engineering UTC you’ll realise that they are something special”.
“It is a forward thinking, innovative place of learning .”
“If you simply want a job, go to a Sixth Form. If you want a career, go to the UTC”.
All our students study a challenging academic curriculum. Year 10 and 11 follow a broad range of GCSEs and other valued qualifications, while in the 6th form our students all follow A levels or Level 3 technical qualifications. Our curriculum includes the development of digital and technical skills with a focus on developing employability: we do far more than traditional schools to prepare our students for the demands of the future economy. The UTC in many ways is closer to a workplace than a school.
Our students benefit from real innovation: we have a long working day but do not commonly set homework. All students wear business dress and use technology to enhance their learning. Our brand new buildings include a major investment in industry-standard technology including advanced computing, virtual reality, robotics and 3D print along with outstanding design and engineering workshops.
South Bank Engineering UTC is privileged to have unrivalled support from university and employer sponsors and partners. This enables our students to benefit from deep and authentic experiences of project-based learning. The projects give students further opportunities to develop their skills, enhance their progress and to give them the edge. Along with our major sponsors, our partners include Fujitsu, Cisco, The Army, Squire & Partners, Bamboo Bicycle Club and many more.
The small size and professional atmosphere at the UTC means that students are sure to benefit from close, positive relationships and high quality pastoral support. If this sounds like ‘School Plus’ to you, apply online or contact us to find out more.
