Welcome from the Principal

As the Principal of The Leigh UTC I want to welcome you to our website and hopefully an extremely bright future as one of our students.

At the moment, you’re probably facing some very important choices about your education. You’ll know that getting these decisions right is highly likely to influence your future career, help you fulfil your potential and reach the heights you want to reach.

At the ground breaking Leigh UTC, we know we are at the very forefront of education for 14 to 19-year-olds. We offer you an incredible opportunity to specialise in computer sciences or engineering in a state-of-the-art facility that is the envy of elite universities across the UK.

Our approach to learning, which involves lots of specialised input from industry and academic partners, will provide you with a great foundation for the future. We’re positive we’re the right choice for you, whether you’re looking to secure a great job after you leave us or continue in higher or further education.

For the 2018/19 academic year, which starts on Monday 3rd September 2018, we have:

  • places available for students born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004 who want to specialise in computing or engineering while studying for their GCSEs
  • places available for students born between 1 September 2001 and 31 August 2002 who want to study a computer sciences or engineering course, AS levels or A-levels, if applicable.

I do hope you see that this can be the beginning of an incredible journey. The Leigh UTC is an environment that feels more like a workplace than a school or college and is full of people with a passion for computing and engineering. If that sounds like you, I hope to see you in September.

Stephen Leahey
Principal of The Leigh UTC
