Key Stage 5 Years 12 & 13

What you learn at GPUTC depends on which of our specialisms you choose – Engineering or the Built Environment. We are firm believers in learning by doing and the employer projects are a key feature of our curriculum. Our employer sponsors will set exciting and challenging technical projects that will inspire you to develop your skills and give you the chance to test them out in a real-life context.


Work experience pays

At the GPUTC, you will get real-life work experience by getting involved in Employer Projects through our employers and key sponsors: Anglian Water, Marshalls Aerospace and Larkfleet Homes, which will maximise your chances of getting a rewarding and respected job when you leave us.


Thinking of going to University? 

When you have completed your studies at GPUTC, this will put you in a prime position when it comes to applying for a place at university with the added value of real-life work experience to support your application.

In Year 12 students have the option of specialising in Engineering or the Built Environment and supplement this with one or two A Level options. The Key Stage 5 Options booklet below provides more details on the different pathways available to students who wish to enter the Sixth Form at GPUTC.
