Message From The Principal
It’s almost the Easter break and I am sure that you are all looking forward to seeing some better weather.
We are living and working in a rapidly changing world, with the last few days have being taken up ensuring that students and staff are engaged in the current blended approach to remote and face to face learning following the positive coronavirus student case.
The ongoing situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic including switching between face-to-face learning and remote learning has caused unprecedented challenges for everyone involved. During this time, many students have demonstrated incredible resilience and resolve to continue learning and where students have struggled to adapt to the changing circumstances, staff have been on hand support them.
We were due to distribute the Easter home testing kits for students earlier this week. I want to convey my sincere thanks go to the amazing business support team who have been delivering the home testing kits to all students that need them. What a team effort – thank you!
End of term student reports are being published as I write this, if you have not received your child’s report please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What has really impressed me during this term is the focus of students in employer led learning and the focus of our year 11 and year 13 students on securing their next steps and future destinations, demonstrating a real can-do attitude.
My genuine thanks go once again to the students, staff and the supportive families for working in such a positive way at such a difficult time.
In conclusion, next term will be a busy one, particularly for year 11 and year 13 who are coming to the end of their programmes of study. We know that students and staff are looking forward to a well-earned Easter break and we look forward to welcoming the students back to the UTC on Tuesday 20th April from 8.30am
