Welcome to UTC Cambridge
UTC Cambridge is a non fee-paying academy for young people aged 14-19. A centre of innovation and excellence, providing unrivalled opportunity for young people considering a career in the fields of science and technology – it is hard to imagine many careers that do not fall within this remit in the fast-moving world we live in today.
Young people join us to study GCSEs at age 14, or to study A levels or BTEC at age 16. We offer our students a unique opportunity to achieve traditional qualifications whilst also getting a head start in developing the skills required for exciting and rewarding careers in the twenty-first century. Students can progress through these critical learning years, spending four years in this specialist “college” environment from age 14 or joining us at sixth-form entry stage.
UTC Cambridge is an ambitious college, aiming to inspire today’s young people and help them become a capable future generation – with the aspiration and ability to provide solutions and tackle the problems facing humanity.
Supported by world-class research, academic and business partners, the College provides a dynamic and inspirational curriculum closely aligned to the needs of the local and national labour market in Science and Technology.
Everything about the college is innovative, set in a £10 million state of the art building, located on the Addenbrooke’s BioMedical Campus, our facilities are second to none. Our teaching staff are all fully qualified teaching professionals but also bring with them a wealth of career experience having also worked in business and industry. They have chosen to join our exciting environment and are committed to bringing out the best in our students, working in a way that encourages maturity and mutual respect. Our relationship with the business and STEM community is remarkable. The support of our business partners is recognised as truly outstanding.
“UTC is a different sort of education.
I believe very strongly that youngsters can learn best through both doing and traditional studying. UTCs combine these opportunities in a unique way.”
