School Description

The UTC meets requirements on the publication of specified information on its website. The UTC complies with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish. The UTC opened in September 2014. It has students in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13. This UTC’s mission is to recruit students within a 15-mile radius of the campus with the aim of educating and training the next generation of computer scientists, event managers and industrial innovators. The UTC is sponsored by the MET (Meller Education Trust) and has the support of the Inspection report: The Watford UTC, 14–15 March 2017 Page 9 of 12 University of Hertfordshire, Twin Technology, Hilton and The Grove. Most recently, it has become a Fujitsu Ambassador. The UTC is much smaller than other secondary schools. It has more boys than girls. The proportion of disadvantaged students is below that found nationally. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is well above average. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is a little below average. The UTC does not meet the current government floor standards. It is not deemed to be ‘coasting’. A small number of students attend alternative provision, three at a pupil referral unit, one at Building One Zone and one at Forest House.
