Welcome from the Principal

Mr S Leahey

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 child’s education. You’ll know that getting these decisions right is highly likely to influence and shape their future careers.  The Leigh UTC will help your child fulfil their potential and reach the heights, wherever that may be.

At the ground breaking Leigh UTC, we know we are at the very forefront of education for 11 to 21-year-olds. We offer you an incredible opportunity to specialise in STEM subjects in a state-of-the-art facility that is the envy of colleges and elite universities across the UK.

Our approach to learning is built around the IB philosophy, which involves a broad inquiry based curriculum at KS3 before specialising at the start of Year 10. Our curriculum is intended to maximise each child’s chances of success and will provide all with a great foundation for their future. We’re positive we’re the right choice for you, whether you’re looking to gain accreditation across a range of subjects or to leave us and continue studying STEM at higher or further education. Since opening in 2014 we have a proven track record of success securing incredible destinations for our students whether they leave us aged 16, 18 or 21

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 STEM. If that sounds like you, I hope to see you in September.
