The UTC working week is designed to be more akin to a workplace when compared to a more traditional school. Our lessons are 50 minutes long. In many cases students will experience double lessons. In key stage 4, students will also participate in triple lessons within engineering and projects. Students at Lincoln UTC learn to manage their time effectively over a much longer period of time than just a single lesson.
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 students in key stage 4 travel to Lincoln College and Eastgate Tennis Club to participate in sport utilising their excellent sports facilities. For students in our sixth form this is an optional activity.
Sports sessions are led by specialist coaches who provide an array of activities including:
Wheelchair basketball Hockey
Throughout the week we have many clubs that students choose to participate in, such as:
Cooking with Anita F1 in Schools
Science club - Chemistry Knit it Friday
Science club - Physics Chess
Science club - Biology Computer Science
GreenPower Racing LGBTQ+
