UTC South Durham

We are a new, state-funded, technical school for 14-19 year olds which opened on Aycliffe Business Park in September 2016. Our focus is to help young people get ready for the world of work and find meaningful careers. The University of Sunderland, Hitachi Rail Europe and Gestamp Tallent have joined together to create the school and provide a fast track to a wide variety of rewarding professions. We are a school, with a strong focus. Our students will study academic subjects; a good range of GCSEs and A-levels. We also offer the opportunity for students to focus on developing their technical knowledge and skills and to work directly with employers. Our school has fantastic facilities and state-of-the-art kit and students have contact with top professionals and teachers with strong industry experience.
