You may have seen this week that we have been in the Herald, not once but twice! On Wednesday, we featured in an article titled ‘The top 9 places in Plymouth that will decide your child’s future’ which also featured organisations like Marjon and Babcock. All the staff were really happy to be featured on this list and it proves that the hard work of our students is being witnessed throughout Plymouth.

Then, less than 24 hours later we were in the paper again for the top performing schools in Plymouth. In this article, you will see a quote from myself about the progress that UTC Plymouth is making and how we are continuing to improve.

Global Debate

On Monday, our Science team will be taking part in a global debate all about how we prepare students for the fourth industrial revolution. We will be one of five UK-based schools partaking in the debate which you can watch live through www.effdebate .org, so be sure to tune in on Monday morning at 9 am!

Inspiring Leaders Week

Today, and as part of our Inspiring Leaders Week, we had Admiral John Clink visit us in college to give a very special assembly all about Inspiring Leaders. Also, as part of the week, we had a competition for students to see if they could name 20 pictured inspirational leaders and, with great delight, I am able to announce the winner! So well done to George Modica-Cliff who will be rewarded with some Amazon goodies!

Minister of Schools Visit

You may have seen on social media that myself, Nick Buckland (Our Chair of Governors) and Oliver Colevile MP travelled to London to meet with the Minister of State for Schools, Nick Gibb MP, at Parliament. We discussed all things to do with UTC Plymouth, continuous improvements the school is making and the potential funding/support available for UTC’s
