At UTC South Durham, we actively promote positive, inclusive values. These include democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect for and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. We believe British Values are those values expected of anyone living in Britain, regardless of their nationality, culture or religious belief.
Our ethos reflects these values. We place great emphasis on building positive relationships in the UTC, amongst the students themselves and between staff and students. We strongly believe students should not merely be taught such values but that they are embedded into school life and how we do things.
We strive to support our students to develop into confident, happy, successful young adults who have empathy towards and an understanding of those less fortunate than themselves.
