About Us

“I feel privileged to be leading such a forward-thinking and innovative outstanding college, and I hope that you will be as excited as I am about the opportunities that we offer young people.”

At the Energy Coast UTC we deliver academic excellence alongside a world class technical and practical education, ensuring all our students excel in employability skills and work directly with employers on a range of projects. Pastoral care is also very important to us and, as a small college, we ensure we know and support all our students well.

In June 2019 we were inspected by Ofsted and graded Outstanding in every single area. We were one of only 34 schools nationally to be graded Outstanding in 2018-19 and only the second UTC ever to be graded Outstanding. In this prospectus you will find a number of quotes from the report, which I would encourage you to read. The full report is available on our website.

Our aim is to prepare students to meet the demand for highly skilled engineers and civil engineers in Cumbria and the world. We do this by ensuring that every student maximises their academic potential, experiences a wide range of enrichment activities and secures industry standard technical qualifications. I believe that the employer partnerships we have are amongst the best in the country. Every young person studying at the Energy Coast UTC spends several hours a week working on employer projects or enrichment and undertakes several work experience placements.

As a parent myself, I know that choosing a school or college can be one of the toughest decisions to make. I believe the Energy Coast UTC is, in every respect, a college good enough for my own child and therefore your child. You are very welcome to visit us and talk to us if you would like to find out more.
