Greater Peterborough UTC accepts applications from young people who are passionate about a career in STEM and are looking for something a little bit different. We treat our students as young professionals and equip them with the knowledge, skills and behaviours they will need to excel in their chosen career. Our careers provision is in the top 7% of schools nationally so every student can expect top-quality, personalised guidance which supports them on their journey.
We are unfortunately unable to hold an Open Evening at the moment, so instead we have collated all the information you would normally receive on this section of our website. Please explore thoroughly, just as you would if you were able to tour the building in person. We hope you will see how passionate we are about providing our students with an innovative blend of technical and academic education.

What is Greater Peterborough UTC?
GPUTC are proud to be Peterborough's first STEM-specialist school, giving young people the chance to follow a unique academic and technical curriculum into higher education or the world of work.
Our £25 million campus was opened in September 2016 and has rapidly established itself as one of the highest performing schools in the area. Our campus includes industry-standard workshops and IT design studios, as well as specialist Science labs and state of the art digital Engineering equipment.
Here at GPUTC, we pride ourselves on our ability to secure outstanding destinations for all of our students. Every one of our leavers has successfully enrolled onto courses or started job roles relevant and appropriate to their individual passions and career aspirations. We are the area's leading educational establishment for the Engineers, Architects, Scientists and Designers of the future, specialising in educating the tech-savvy workforce required for the evolving modern world.
The most exciting element of the GPUTC experience is our employer-shaped, industry-facing curriculum, giving our students the ability to not just gain vital qualifications, but also giving them the chance to develop the skills and behaviours required to be successful in the workplace. Through these unique and diverse links with industry partners, our students are able to explore, connect, evaluate and justify the best solutions to real-world problems whilst also gaining support and advice from some of the region’s most important employers.
