School Description

The university technical college (UTC) opened in September 2015. In line with all UTCs, it is much smaller than the average-sized secondary school. UTC Oxfordshire has space for 600 pupils. UTC Oxfordshire is sponsored by Activate Learning Education Trust, University of Reading, Royal Holloway University of London and a range of industry partners including UK Atomic Energy Authority, RM Education and Mini Plant Oxford. As a UTC, the school caters for pupils from the age of 14 to age 19. It specialises in science and engineering. The school day is longer than the usual school day, and pupils start at 8.30am and leave at 5pm. Inspection report: UTC Oxfordshire, 22–23 May 2018 Page 9 of 12 Most pupils and students are of White British heritage. The proportion from a minority ethnic background is below average, as is the proportion of pupils and students who speak English as an additional language. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is below the national average. A high proportion of pupils are identified as having SEN and/or disabilities. The school does not comply with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish on its website. It does not publish the required detail about the curriculum for each academic year or sufficient detail of the school’s pupil premium strategy.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
