About us

As you approach the beginning of GCSEs or Post-16, you’ll be facing some important choices about your learning. You’ll know that getting these decisions right will set you on the path to a great career. We’re really pleased that you’re thinking of coming to UTC Reading and taking advantage of the many opportunities we can offer you. 

With us, you’ll be able to follow your areas of interest in either computer science or engineering while studying GCSEs, A-levels and getting invaluable practical skills from the best in the industry. This is because 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. 

We believe that students who attend UTC Reading, rated Outstanding in all categories by Ofsted in 2015 and a World Class School in 2017, are given the best start in a variety of progression routes. Last year our students progressed on to university, an apprenticeship, a sponsored degree programme or employment. 

UTC Reading will offer you something different. And we expect you to want something different:

  • to follow your interest in computer science or engineering while studying for your GCSEs or A-levels
  • to embrace opportunities to work through challenges and projects set by our industry partners
  • to want the best chance of moving into employment or further and higher education in your chosen field

If you want to benefit from the latest technology, be in an environment that feels more like being at work than school and benefit from our wide industry links then UTC Reading could be for you.

We hope our guide will inspire you to find out more about the great opportunities we have to offer at UTC Reading and we would warmly welcome you to join us in September 2018.
