Welcome from UTC Warrington Principal & Chief Executive, Lee Barber


Welcome to UTC Warrington;

Warrington’s first dedicated 14-19 academy with specialisms in Energy and Engineering. With our £10 million iconic new building, filled with £1m of specialist engineering 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, we have the benefit of their expertise in supporting students into accessing high-quality Higher Education provision, as well as the technical know-how of the academic experts at the School of Engineering.



Centrally located with excellent transport links on our doorstep, UTC Warrington is accessible for students far and wide. 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.


I look forward to working with students, parents, Manchester Metropolitan University and employers alike, to establish UTC Warrington as an outstanding, unique and dynamic educational institution.

Lee Barber, Principal Delegate & Chief Executive
