student leadership team

At UTC Portsmouth we hold elections each year for key student leadership positions. Candidates for student President come from Year 12 while Vice Presidents are from Year 10. Throughout their year of service, student leaders are the voice of the student body and bring ideas and issues directly the the college Principal. They also represent the college at key events, including open evenings and the new intake sixth form social.


joseph Rickman - President

Previous School: Ormiston Six Villages Academy

Study programme: A Level Maths, A level Physics and a Level 3 Engineering certificate

Why did you choose to study at UTC Portsmouth?: I loved the STEM focus of the college, it has a very specific set of subjects that I wanted to study. This meant the teaching is very specialised and the extracurricular options are tailored to the areas I would like to pursue after college. Also, the facilities are new and are unlike any other college meaning we get to experience industry level machinery and CNC, especially in subjects like engineering.

What are your plans for the future?: I would like to go to university to study design with the hopes of becoming a product designer.  

Name: Samuel Beer - President

Previous school: Springfield School

Study programme: A level Maths, A level Physics and Level 3 Engineering certificate

Why did you choose to come and study at UTC Portsmouth?

I chose to study here because of the ability to study engineering alongside two A levels. These options, combined with the strong STEM focus, allow me to develop what I am passionate in. The training, enrichment and mentoring slots during the week also not only give the college a caring and personalised experience but gives you an opportunity to develop your interests.

What are your plans for the future?

I will be going to university to study either Physics or Astronautical Engineering, to hopefully be an Astronautical engineer.
