Students at Lincoln University
Technical College (UTC) have achieved excellent A Level results in the school’s
specialist subjects; engineering, maths, science and technology.
UTC students achieved a 100% A Level pass rate with 54% of results graded from A*-B and 73% 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.
“When I look at our students I am humbled by their fortitude and resilience. They are a generation whose experience and education have been hit so much over the last few 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. 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 Harry achieved A*A*A B in A Level maths, physics, further maths, and chemistry. In September he will begin a BSc in Physics at Lancaster University, which was rated third in the UK for this particular course in The Guardian University League Tables 2022.
Harry’s mother said: “As a parent I would like to take this opportunity to say how impressed we have been with the educational provision at Lincoln UTC, Harry has had such a positive experience whilst studying here.
“We are so grateful to all of his subject teachers for their dedication and commitment, especially whilst organising home learning during the pandemic, and more recently with the additional revision sessions and encouragement prior to exams.
“As a family we believe it was 100% the right decision for Harry to join the UTC and we are so glad that he was accepted and had the opportunity to study here. Now moving onwards, we look forward to Harry’s next chapter at Lancaster University.”
Paul Birt, Chair of Governors at Lincoln UTC and Head of HR – Smart Infrastructure Division at Siemens GB&I said: “It has been another tremendous year for Lincoln UTC and its students. To have achieved such outstanding results is remarkable, especially considering the impact of the pandemic on education over the last few years.
“I would like to thank our excellent staff for their dedication and inspiration whilst congratulating our students on their results.”
