Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Greater Peterborough UTC. We 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.

Choosing to move schools at any age is a leap of faith. I encourage you to explore what we have to offer by attending Open Events (where you can speak to staff and students about their experiences) and take part in our taster sessions (where prospective students can meet our sponsors and take part in Engineering and Design challenges). Engineers, Architects, Scientists and Designers must be inquisitive and curious if they are to succeed, so I encourage you and your children to ask questions when you visit. Ask any member of staff or student about out ethos and our Vision and Values and I’m certain that you will see the passion we have for our school shining through.

I look forward to meeting you.
