UTC Portsmouth is a new type of college that provides a specialist STEM curriculum delivered by experts to meet the growing demands of employers across the region.
We are passionate and committed to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects and offer an outstanding academic and technical learning environment for young people aged 14-19 years old. Alongside the national curriculum, UTC Portsmouth specialises in mechanical and electrical engineering and advanced manufacturing, offering engineering study programmes as well as A levels and GCSEs.
The start of the 2019-20 academic year has got off to a great start! Our new year groups of students are full and oversubscribed again. In fact, over 200 new students have joined us from around 70 different schools and colleges across the whole Solent region. I continue to be impressed by students wanting to travel some distance and by whatever means to get the specialised STEM education they have been seeking.
