My DS is at a UTC, he moved there in year 10, it's been the making of him. He's staying on into 6th form to study Engineering & sports - we had his interview and unconditional offer this morning, I'm just delighted for him.

I know a few UTCs have had bad reports because of being new and being forced to take kids who had nowhere else to go after being excluded, but that won't stand for 6th form and it's certainly not our experience, they have a zero tolerance policy for any nonsense.
