UTC Warrington is a state-funded, purpose built technical college for 14-19 year olds which opened in central Warrington in September 2016.
Our key focus is to support young people prepare for the world of work, develop technical skills, and to find meaningful careers – apprenticeships, university, or employment. Manchester Metropolitan University collaborated with employers such as Sellafield Ltd to create the UTC, providing students with valuable relationships and experiences within the STEM industry in the North West and beyond.
We are a school and 6th form, with a strong focus and vision that prepares students for a high quality role within science, technology, and engineering. Our students study academic subjects, with a range of GCSEs and post-16 qualifications. We also offer the opportunity for students to focus on developing their technical knowledge and skills and to work directly with the region’s employers. Our dedicated personal development programme encourages students to challenge themselves by using their skills in Leadership, Organisation, Resilience, Initative, and Communication in all aspects of their UTC career. Combined with opportunities to take part in high quality enrichment (cadets, NCS, student leadership, sport) our young people are ready for the world of work.
Our school has fantastic facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. Students have contact with industry professionals and teachers with strong industry experience.
