At UTC Portsmouth we are fortunate to be supported by a range of high profile, committed partners who actively engage in curriculum design and in the provision of real life practical learning experiences reinforced by proven and tested theory and first class physical resources. The spacious well equipped classrooms, learning spaces, labs and workshops allow students to develop their skills in a safe, industry standard environment. The open and inviting atrium is an ideal space to breakout and learn whilst mingling with friends between
timetabled sessions, sharing ideas and concepts for the projects and learning undertaken. I personally look forward to meeting students and hearing of their experiences and seeing their creations as the year progresses. Although sited in Portsmouth the nature of the curriculum offer attracts students from across the Solent region. Student applications for Year 10 open again in October and to find out more, please read further on in this prospectus and go to the UTC Portsmouth website. I am proud to have been elected as the UTC Portsmouth’s first Chair of Trustees and look forward to working with other trustees, parents, students and the college’s Senior Leadership Team to provide an exciting, safe and valuable learning experience.
