Transition At UTC Warrington

Year 10 Transition

Joining UTC Warrington at Key Stage 4 acknowledges the aspirations of young people, offering them the opportunity to pursue a path in Science & Engineering.

 At GCSE level, we aim to provide our students with high quality academic and vocational qualifications to gain the knowledge and expertise in their chosen field.

Our focus on the PiXL Edge framework aims to develop the interpersonal skills of our cohort, alongside enrichment opportunities such as Duke of Edinburgh. These skills culminate in workshop activities and placements offered by our network of employer partners.

UTC Warrington works closely with Warrington Borough Council to ensure transitions to our academy are smooth and positive.

Prospective students are invited to attend taster session events throughout the year

Year 12 Transition

Students joining UTC Warrington’s Sixth Form are likely to have a passion for Science & Engineering. Our academic and technical qualifications will be supported by our network of employer partners who will offer work experience and workshops for students.

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) will show employers and universities that our students can develop their own ideas, whilst professional qualifications such as Prince2 set our students up with the skills specific to industry.

Opportunities such as taking part in the NCS programme as part of our curriculum will develop on communication, teamwork and problem solving skills.

Current UTC Warrington Year 11 students should fill in an application form to join the sixth form. Our staff will guide and support the year group through examinations and future destinations. Students and parents will be invited to attend guidance sessions in the months before their examinations. The key dates for Year 11 are available here.

Students from outside of UTC Warrington are invited to apply online and attend future taster sessions. Applicants will be invited to guidance sessions to discuss options and opportunities available at UTC Warrington. Enrolment will take place at UTC Warrington on results day in August.
