We just want to remind you that we close for the Christmas break at 12pm on Friday 21st December this year. Our UTC buses will be running as normal for those students that use them. We start back on Monday January 7th.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your continued support through 2018 and look forward to 2019.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from us all here at UTC South Durham.
UTC South Durham is a state-funded, purpose built technical school and sixth form for 14-19 year olds which opened in Aycliffe Business Park in September 2016.
Our key focus is to help young people get ready for the world of work and find meaningful, technical and academic careers. The University of Sunderland, Hitachi Rail Europe and Gestamp Tallent collaborated to create the school and to provide a fast track to a wide variety of rewarding professions right here in the heart of the North East.
We are a school and sixth form, with a strong focus and vision. Our students study academic subjects, with a 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 the region’s employers.
Our school has fantastic facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. Students have contact with industry professionals and teachers with strong industry experience.
