I am very proud to welcome you to UTC@harbourside.

We offer all of our students an excellent academic and technical education focussed on science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and a caring and exciting place to learn.

Here at the UTC, engineering links all our subjects and we are proud that all our learning is applied to solve real-world problems. We enable our students to flourish throughout their education whilst encouraging an entrepreneurial mind set. Our aim is that each and every one of our students will leave us as confident young people fully prepared for the working world.

Students – if you want to exceed your potential in STEM then this is the place for you. Studying will be demanding and you will need to work hard, but the rewards can be huge. We stand out because our students prioritise STEM subjects whilst studing other subjects which give them access to the best A Level courses, jobs, higher level programmes and apprenticeships. With us, you will work alongside industry experts who can recognise and develop your talent, and who one day could employ you.

Parents – I recognise that one of the most important things that you can give your child is a good education and what matters to us the most is high quality teaching, learning and individual support. We work actively with parents to give the support, commitment, care and energy that will launch you child into their own exciting future.

Our iconic building, at the harbour in Newhaven, recently won the Sussex Heritage Trust Award for the quality and excellence of its design. Our unique setting is reflected in our values; we place our environment, and creating a sustainable future, high on our list of priorities. Our UTC also acts as a gateway to Europe which brings so many opportunities to our students, so get your passports ready!

I hope that you will come and meet the UTC family at one of our forthcoming events listed on our events page or by making an individual appointment. We would love to show you around and tell you all about what studying with us is like.

If you have any queries we would be delighted to help. Do get in touch on 01273 916170, or kathrynreynolds@utc-harbourside.org, or pop in to see us. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
