Silverstone UTC is a fantastic place to learn and study, where you will enjoy being part of an inclusive community with a common goal – to release your potential and give you the best possible support on your journey to developing your career. We are still just a young organisation, having opened in 2013, and have quickly become established as an organisation that helps large numbers of students into careers with prestigious local and global companies.
Building high-performing, work-ready, young people.
Our ethos is about building high-performing, work-ready, young people and establishing lasting relationships with our students based on mutual respect. I am a firm believer that the measure of your success can be found in the quality of your relationships, and values built around this premise govern our day-to-day business: an environment designed to promote excellence.
Visitors often comment that they forget they are in a school when they visit us, with the atmosphere being very different to most other schools. In part, this is down to the great maturity of our students and also down to the architecture of our RIBA Award shortlisted building, which enjoys vast amounts of natural light, no enclosed corridors, and plenty of glazed walls to add to the feeling of openness.
A curriculum designed to set you up for life.
We have great aspirations for our students, whose progress is accelerated with us, and we are very proud that our alumni are getting placed at their preferred universities, as well as onto apprenticeships with big name companies, including 4 of the 7 UK-based Formula 1 teams. Those companies have come to expect good things of our alumni, so we will expect you to work to meet the high standards that will be expected of you – not just in your studies but also in building your confidence to become an independent young person who will stand out from the crowd when you come to take the next step of your career.
We are a growing community, building a reputation for delivering a higher calibre of young person ready for university, apprenticeships and work and I look forward to you being a key part of this in September.
