Our aim is to become a world-class centre of excellence in computer science and engineering education for 14 to 18 year old girls and boys who are committed to succeed in these areas.

Our students will be well-known for having the skills, attitude, behaviours, knowledge and experience that the world’s leading employers are looking for. UTC Reading has the support of local, high profile industry and academic partners who help to shape the curriculum and work closely with our students. 

The learning experience at UTC Reading will be practical and engaging. Students benefit from both academic rigour and practical learning experiences.

Here is Principal Joanne Harper speaking about teaching and learning at the UTC:

Students will leave the UTC with skills that are in demand in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths), and be well-equipped to progress straight into employment, an apprenticeship or on to higher education.

Here is a great video made by students at The Elstree UTC introducing UTCs:

Students will also have access to our Fujitsu Innovation Hub:

  • Active Learning
  • Microsoft
  • Cisco
  • University of Reading
  • Network Rail
