Year 8 End of Term

Two Leigh UTC students are shown sitting next to each other at a desk. One is shown using a soldering iron on a piece of wire.

Dear Parents/Carers,

As we approach the end of the school year I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have given both to your child and to the school. 

I would also like to thank the students for their diligence, good behaviour and achievements.

Since starting school in September, students have been awarded over 15,000 positive points and read 2060 books on MYon. Both are  fantastic achievements that I am very keen to continue into the next school year.

We are equally as proud of all the students who have engaged so positively with their online distance learning and face to face sessions with their teachers. 

Your child will be receiving their end of module report this week. Please speak to your child about their performance. When they return in September they will be working with their tutor and teachers setting targets to move forward academically ensuring they meet their potential. 

This will be particularly important for your child as they enter a crucial year including option choices and also working across both school sites. I know the year group will rise to the challenge, demonstrating the high levels of maturity already seen this year.

In addition, I am delighted to announce that after a Challenge Partners visit last week, the Leigh UTC and Inspiration Academy was  judged as a ‘Leading’ education provider in all areas (the highest possible judgement). In addition, they awarded us a National Area of Excellence for our Business Engagement and for our Post-16 STEM curriculum. 

Finally, I would like to let parents and carers know that this term ends on Wednesday 21st July at 12.45pm. 

I hope that learning will continue throughout the holiday and that you will encourage your child to attempt the summer challenge competition set out by Ms Gilmore. 

I hope you have a wonderful summer.

Yours faithfully,

Mr D Freeman

Head of College
