GPUTC staff on hand to give advice to students following GCSE results
Following GCSE results yesterday the Greater Peterborough UTC is urging students to think about their options for September.
Places starting in September are still available at Greater Peterborough UTC. Specialising in Built Environment and Engineering, GPUTC students will combine traditional GCSEs and A-levels with technical qualifications.
The state-of-the-art, scandi-style three storey school, next to Peterborough Regional College, facilitates the best technical education for 16 year olds about to start A-levels or further education. Complete with separate engineering and construction workshops, individual, specially tailored science labs, computer design rooms, a top floor restaurant with roof terrace, communal zones and an enormous double-height event space.
Steve Warburton, Principal said: “We have senior staff on hand today to answer any questions students might have. If students have the exam results they wanted, they can confirm their place with us. If your results are different to what you were initially expecting, but you are interested in engineering or the built environment please get in touch, as we still have spaces starting in September.
The school will be opening on Monday 12th September and we are looking forward to welcoming the engineers, designers, builders and architects of the future.”
When the school opens in September it will provide students in Peterborough and the surrounding areas with a unique study option. Combining traditional A-levels with technical qualifications, and with employer sponsors Anglian Water, Larkfleet Homes, Perkins Engines as well as many of their partners, the school offers students an insight into the real world of engineering, construction and design through employer projects.
