The UTC Week

Home > Key Information > The UTC Week

The majority of each student’s timetable is filled with lessons working towards a variety of GCSE, Cambridge National, A Level and BTEC qualifications.

It is important to acknowledge that the time allocated to specialist subjects is considerable. Of the 36 teaching hours per week GCSE students will spend 20 hours studying maths, science and engineering.

Every Monday afternoon our year 10 and 11 students travel to the University of Lincoln to use their excellent sports facilities. For students in year 12 and 13 this is optional.

Sports sessions are led by specialist coaches who provide an array of activities including:

  • Cricket
  • Rugby
  • Wheelchair basketball
  • Hockey
  • Squash
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis at the Eastgate Club
  • Netball
  • Football

Whilst many choose to take advantage of this there is also the option to remain on site for extra academic support, especially for our Post-16 students who may also wish to use this time for volunteering or charitable work.

On Fridays we finish our working day slightly earlier than usual at 3.35pm.
