“I’m delighted to congratulate all the students on their excellent results this year, they’re to be commended for all their hard work and should be very proud of what they’ve achieved. It’s extremely encouraging to see the positive learning experience and support provided by the dedicated team at the Leigh UTC translating into opportunities for students to realise their highest potential. I’m sure this will inspire and encourage younger children towards STEM subjects. The results also continue to show the benefits of a business-led problem-solving curriculum, which is so important for employers and young people at the start of their careers. Well done to all and good luck on the next steps towards your future goals and aspirations.”
