Applications now open for Year 7!

Greater Peterborough UTC is excited to announce it is now accepting applications for students wishing to start Year 7 at the school in September 2021.

As Peterborough’s only specialist Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) school, Greater Peterborough UTC (GPUTC) is able to provide this new and unique opportunity working alongside academic partners Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT).

Current Year 6 students living in and around Peterborough with a passion for STEM can contact GPUTC now to find out how they can benefit from the high-quality engineering academic curriculum. This education is aimed at developing the next generation of scientists, architects, designers and mathematicians.

A Covid-secure open day takes place at the school, in Park Crescent, on Monday 10th May where prospective students for this year and next can meet the teaching staff and explore the rich opportunity provided by the state-of-the-art STEM school.

David Bisley, Principal at Greater Peterborough UTC, said: “Everyone here at the GPUTC is delighted with this news, and we look forward to welcoming our first Year 7 students in September 2021.

“Our uniqueness comes from our ability to pioneer an Expeditionary Learning journey. This innovative and exciting programme sees students engage in learning across multiple subjects, completing in-depth research of compelling authentic topics.

“This ground-breaking scheme is a first for the wider Peterborough area and has been designed to provide students with exciting and engaging studies through a series of expeditions designed to enhance students' knowledge, develop their research and critical thinking skills, and spend high-quality time with our employer sponsors.”

The September 2021 intake is for up to 60 places, to ensure high quality educational provision is delivered, alongside unrivalled care, support and guidance from GPUTC’s dedicated Year 7 team of teachers and support staff. Applications are welcomed from current Year 6 students with a passion for STEM living in Peterborough and also from the neighbouring area such as Stamford, Huntingdon or Corby.
