Progress 8

The new Progress 8 headline measure looks at student progress from KS2 to KS4.  Of course, we only have impact on the last two years of this journey and have therefore calculated the Progress 8 measure from the time they start at the UTC until the time they complete KS4. The Progress 8 score for the time students spend at the UTC is 0.49; well above average. 

Progress 8 Evaluation for Summer 2017 Examination Results

At UTC Reading, we are pleased to say that our students make great progress. On joining UTC Reading students are roughly a whole grade below where they should be and during the time spent with us at UTC Reading, they not only make the progress expected at Key Stage 4 but also make up most of the gap from the time of joining the UTC.

The vast majority of our students do not study the English Baccalaureate as they attend the UTC for a specialist curriculum concentrating, in the main on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
