Our Post 16 students have continued to excel in the IBCP, with 100% students receiving the full certificate, and more students achieving the higher grades of 6 and 7 (equivalent A-A*) than ever before. 50% of students achieved double distinction or higher in Level 3 BTEC engineering and business, with 60% of girls getting double distinction or above in engineering and 100% of girls achieving double distinction in business.  The new T Level qualification in computing has been successful in its first year with 100% achieving destinations at HE and higher/ degree apprenticeships.

All of our students are leaving for apprenticeships, universities or employment. 96% of our students are undertaking STEM pathways. 

The Leigh UTC Principal Steve Leahey said: “To consistently achieve exceptional Post 16 results year after year is phenomenal and a great tribute to our students, their parents, our fantastic employer partners and all our talented staff.  Whilst I am extremely proud of our students’ examination success, I am equally proud of the progress they made in terms of their personal and employability skills and the fact that they have gone onto exciting careers within the technology and engineering industries or to study these subjects to degree level at university.  The Leigh UTC was established to ‘deliver outstanding STEM’ and to provide a talent pipeline for our university and employer partners and the wider engineering and technology sectors and we’re delivering on that vision.  

Clive Barker, Chair of Governors, said: “congratulations to all our year 13 students who are today receiving their results after much hard work over the last two years. Their destinations reflect the amazing opportunities they have had, to forge meaningful partnerships with industry and employers. These relationships with business continue to grow as we further develop the T Level programme. The meaningful partnerships with industry and employers the students have had are reflected in the destinations they have secured.”
