Principal & Chief Executive’s Welcome


Welcome to UTC Warrington; Warrington’s first dedicated 14-19 academy with specialisms in Science and Engineering. With our £10 million iconic new building, filled with £1.5m of specialist engineering and IT equipment, we aim to create a unique, aspirational, technical and academic curriculum, which prepares our students for an exciting career.

Working alongside our sponsors, Manchester Metropolitan University and over 50 Engineering employer partners, we have the benefit of their expertise in supporting students into accessing high-quality jobs, apprenticeships and Higher Education provision. Our partners will assist us in delivering a modern, progressive curriculum, utilising the know-how of the academic experts at the MMU School of Science & Engineering and leading engineering experts from industry. Working with our employer and university sponsors, UTC Warrington will address the disconnect between education and industry, giving our students a competitive edge to secure first class careers in the Energy and Engineering sectors.

Our 6-storey, cutting edge facility is ideally located in Warrington Town Centre. With Warrington Central train station and bus station on our doorstep, UTC Warrington is accessible for students and staff far and wide. Staff will have access to the latest technology and vast resources to deliver their curriculum, which they will have a genuine voice in developing. Staff can expect to teach dedicated and enthusiastic students, who have a real passion for STEM based subjects and have aspirations to advance on to good careers or higher education.

I look forward to working with our staff team to establish UTC Warrington as an outstanding, unique and dynamic educational institution.
