If you would like to make an application to Post 16 at The Leigh UTC you will need to complete a Supplementary Information Form available from our website. We will then contact you to arrange a guidance meeting to discuss your application and your aspirations. We will consider your predicted grades and look at which of our 4 pathways would best suit you.
This will also mean you are included on the information we send out to potential Post 16 students

The Leigh UTC is situated on the route of the regular and reliable Fastrack service, with a bus stop outside The Leigh UTC building.
Arriva, the operator of the Fastrack bus service has agreed to give students of The Leigh UTC a discount when using the Fastrack A bus route and tickets are purchased on a daily basis. This discount does not apply to weekly, monthly or annual tickets.
The discount will be given when students show their ID badge to the bus driver.
Bursaries are available for students whose family meet the criteria. Students can apply as soon as they enrol at The Leigh UTC
Students have outstanding pastoral support, via their form tutors and College Student Support Managers, as well as the support of the Director of Post-16, Syreeta Martin.
Students will meet with their tutors every day and this will be their first point of contact.
Post 16 students are able to leave the school for lunch breaks. However there is a canteen on site which offers hot and cold food. This is paid for using a parent pay account which will be shared once you start at the UTC.
Mobile phones are allowed in The Leigh UTC, if used in a professional way – during lesson times must be switched off and stored in a bag or pocket.
