Welcome from the Principal
Mr K Watson
It is with great pride that we welcome you to Leigh UTC. “The innovative learning environment that we provide is often the first impression, but our community remains the lasting impression”.
The Leigh UTC is a deliberate and bespoke institution, we believe the opportunities we provide for all stakeholders are in many respects unparalleled. Through our ethos we instill and maintain traditional values of behaviour whilst evolving our practice with the changing needs of our environment, both locally and internationally. We promote authenticity as individuals but by working in collaboration we can pioneer.
Our broad and balanced curriculum experience has additional focus on a STEM education with specialism in engineering and computing. Built around the IB philosophy, our approach to learning involves a wide inquiry-based curriculum which together with an exceptional, technical and academic education enables our students to develop important work-related skills. We work in partnership with high profile local and regional employers who will introduce our students to the world of work they can offer.
“Our relentless mission is to unleash potential in order to raise horizons, enabling the students for whom we work to become architects of their future”
I hope our website provides you with some key information, as well as giving you a flavour of our Academy. We encourage you to visit and see us in action and I look forward to welcoming you.
