EUTC: together, we create.

We’ve been building something and we are attempting to light the way. We’ve been building a way to a different approach to education - one where students are included more, where the curriculum has value and connection. We’re trying to give light to a fresh approach which is not the typical standardised and ‘factory’ learning model but rather something of variety and difference, colour and light.

'Jump in'... bravery and daring in our 6th year

We are confident, we are no longer vulnerable, now is the time to go for it.  So come on our KS4 students, don't be satisfied with level 4... jump off!  Come on post 16 students... Don't be satisfied with a 'C grade' pass... jump off!  Throw yourself in; more homework, more reading, more independent study, fully immerse yourselves, be brave, put your face in fully. And you shall swim and your progress will be fast and deep.

Here's to the year of bravery, challenge and commitment.

Be Odd?

BYOD means that, while we will continue to provide the high level industry and specialist technology which is often very expensive, we will also use high quality WiFi to make cloud based software available for students and staff with their own devices.
