“Achievement in the sixth form is outstanding. In 2017, the progress made by students was well above that made by other students nationally.
This is because students receive high-quality teaching and benefit from the expert support provided by staff.
Expectations are consistently very high, and students respond to this with enthusiasm and commitment”
– Ofsted, 2019
In the most recent league tables Lincoln UTC had the
highest A Level progress scores of any school or college in Lincolnshire.
A Level results in 2021 were truly outstanding. UTC students achieved a 100% pass rate with 41% of results graded from A*-A and 78% from A*-C. Roughly half of the students in the sixth form study a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Engineering, equivalent to 3 A Levels, and 100% of students on this course passed with 71% achieving a distinction grade.
“This has been a very difficult year for us all but particularly for year 13 students who have endured disruption to their studies for the last two academic years. Therefore, we are particularly pleased that despite numerous challenges our students have achieved excellent and very well-deserved A Level results.” said the Principal of Lincoln UTC, John Morrison.
“I am very confident that the students who aspire to attend university will have achieved the grades needed to be accepted onto their preferred course, despite the unusual circumstances. Both the students and the teaching team have worked very hard, and we look forward to seeing our students succeed in the next stage of their education and career.”
UTC student Rudi Konrath achieved A*A*A* in A Level maths, physics, and further maths. In September he will begin a four-year MEng degree programme in engineering at Peterhouse College with the University of Cambridge.
Rudi’s mother, Amanda Konrath, said: “Over the past four years Rudi has had an exceptionally positive experience at the UTC. The teachers know their students incredibly well and relationships are built on mutual respect.
"Rudi has always been inspired and motivated to aim high, and his incredible work ethic is born from the ethos of the college. As Ofsted recognised, the UTC environment is underpinned by a strong set of values to which all members of the community subscribe. Huge thanks to this incredible school, for guiding Rudi to achieve his full potential.”
