14 to 16 year olds

Students who attend the Leigh UTC at Key Stage 4 are agreeing to follow a core GCSE programme along with a technically based programme of learning.

Students are placed into ability groups to ensure that they receive the most appropriate support for their learning. Class sizes will be no greater than 25.

Students also participate in industry led challenges across Key stage 4 with emphasis across a variety of topics, for example these include elements of product and system design, manufacturing, creating specifications, software & hardware development, material science and enterprise. These challenges not only contribute in part to the GCSE and BTEC curricula, but also provide valuable experience of industry practice, collaboration, teamwork, innovation and communication.
