Welcome to Elstree UTC starters 2017

Elstree UTC is ever so excited to begin a new learning journey with our new starters in years 10 and 12.  Enrolment has gone well and we are fully subscribed!

Here is the plan for the first three days while we get everyone established and familiar with the college and each other.  Remember, everyone is new and keen to start a new type of education where they can like coming to school and enjoy learning subjects they are passionate about.  EUTC is unique because our learners have chosen to come here because they are looking for something different to the schooling they have had before and they share a passion for Multimedia, performance and production arts.  Lots of our new learners will be nervous but after the first 3 days, we will be well connected together.  Elstree UTC is the best school community I have ever worked in and we look after each other well here.

Really looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming back our existing students and being inspired and passionate together as we learn, communicate, imagine and make stuff.

Be confident.  This is a great place to be yourself and learn about creativity, communication and culture in a practical and relevant way.
