Post-16 Transition Days Invitation – Wednesday 6th and 13th July 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,

It gives me great excitement to announce The Leigh UTC’s Year 12 Transition days on Wednesday 6th July and Wednesday 13th July 2022. The aim of this is to allow students to get a taste of life at the UTC as a Post-16 student. Across the two days, there will be a number of workshops that your son/daughter will take part in, including subject taster sessions. Students must attend the induction days in full business dress. (No jeans, No trainers and No hoodies).

Both days will start at 9am and will finish at 3pm.

Students will follow a timetable based on their selected options and specialisms over 2 consecutive Wednesdays. Staff are really excited to meet with them and share their knowledge and enthusiasm for their subjects and the UTC.

Our Business partners will be sharing in your son/daughter’s experience over the transition days and taking part in an awards ceremony on the last day.

Please find attached your son/daughter’s ‘Golden Ticket’ invitation. Please confirm attendance by 10th June 2022 by emailing admissions@theleighutc.org.uk.

We recommend that students bring a packed lunch and water. Although students will be allowed to go out for lunch if they wish to. If you wish to purchase any food or drink from our restaurant it is cash only.

What comes next?

Following the induction days in July, the next steps are to officially enrol at The Leigh UTC. The dates to enrol are Thursday 25th, Friday 26th and Tuesday 30th August from 9am-1pm. Once your son/daughter has collected their GCSE results, please come along as soon as possible to meet our Post 16 team who will complete the enrolment. If for whatever reason you are unable to attend, please ensure you contact us by email admissions@theleighutc.org.uk on or before these dates, as spaces are limited.
