Junior Field Gun Challenge

A huge congratulations to our Field Gun Team who soldiered on through the the Royal Navy Junior Field Gun Challenge and performed nothing short of heroically.

The competition was designed to inspire the scientists, engineers and technicians of the future, helping to build essential skills for the world of work, including team work, self-reliance, resilience and communication.

The other competing UTCs included Aston University Engineering Academy, Derby Manufacturing UTC, Elutec Academy of Design and Engineering, UTC Harbourside, South Wiltshire UTC, Plymouth UTC, UTC Reading and South Devon UTC.

With dedication and hardwork, GPUTC students came 8th out of the 18 teams. Students trained hard during the week of the competition while they lived on HMS Bristol in Portsmouth. During this time the students learnt how to work together as a team and gave it their all on the day of the competition. The team were praised by the Royal Navy for displaying the Navy's core values of Courage, Commitment, Discipline, Respect, Integrity & Loyalty during the course of the week. Thank you to the Royal Navy and The Royal Marines Charity for giving our students the opportunity to take part in the competition #ThinkUTC
