Gemma Laing

Director of Pastoral Care Years 7-11

My role is to have strategic oversight of the pastoral care and structure at UTC Plymouth. I have worked in education for over 13 years and pastoral care has always been my passion. For me, it is important that no child is left behind and that each and every student is supported and afforded the best opportunities to succeed


Nathan Tills

Pastoral Lead for Year 7&8 and Transitions Co-Ordinator

My role within UTC is to make sure students transition from primary to UTC is smooth and successful. I also oversee the year 7&8 students on a day to day basis, making sure that they settle into the school environment and supporting them to achieve the best they can.

Esther Knight

Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator

My role as part of the transition team is to make sure that when your child transitions to us from another setting we fully understand your child's needs and we have a plan in place for your child's arrival. I have nearly twenty years experience in Education and recently completed a Masters in Special Educational Needs, I hope I can share this experience with you and do the best for your child's academic and wellbeing needs at the UTC.
