principal's welcome

Thank you for taking the time to check out our online prospectus. I hope it provides you with an overview of our vision, our approach to learning, our creative industry specialism and our curriculum offer.

We say ‘Love Learning Make Magic’ because when you actually want to be at college or work; when you’re happy and motivated; when you are in love with what you’re doing - magic happens. We see it all the time in student productions; in the creative collaborations between artist, performer and backstage technician. Learners flourish here because they care about what they’re doing and they love their areas of study. We are obsessive believers in the magic of the creative arts and the culture industries. 

We work with state of the art kit in a new purpose build campus under the guidance of specialist educators and industry partners. If you are a creative and brave thinker with a passion for media, art, performance, production and digital technology then EUTC offers a bespoke curriculum and a chance to develop insight into this vibrant creative sector, whilst attending a free and inclusive industry school and sixth form college. 

We have a ‘grown up’ and relational approach to learning together and we would be delighted to welcome you to get in touch with us and apply to join our learning community. Please feel free to arrange a time to pop in during our open hours to see a college day in action - we have a number of open mornings throughout the spring term. 

Whatever final choice you make about your education going forwards, I sincerely hope that you Love Learning and Make Magic.

life at eutc

 Key Stage 5 at Elstree University Technical College aspires to develop students as versatile, independent learners with the drive for, and understanding of, what it takes to succeed in the future workplace.

In order to achieve this goal we are looking for highly motivated students with a passion for the creative arts industries, in return we offer a wide range of courses and project enriched learning suited for students pursuing these career paths. We encourage all our post-16 students to engage with enrichment through Projects and/or EPQ's. As well as this we expect students to take three subjects across the school. This will provide students with a suitable CV to compete for positions which are highly sought after.
