The new Progress 8 headline measure looks at student progress from KS2 to KS4. Of course, we only have impact on the last two years of this journey and have therefore calculated the Progress 8 measure from the time they start at the UTC until the time they complete KS4. The Progress 8 score for the time students spend at the UTC is +0.08.
Progress 8 Evaluation for Summer 2017 Examination Results
At UTC Oxfordshire, we are pleased to say that our students make good progress. On joining UTC Oxfordshire students are roughly a whole grade below where they should be and during the time spent with us at UTC Oxfordshire, they not only make the progress expected at Key Stage 4 but also make up most of the gap from the time of joining the UTC.
The vast majority of our students do not study the English Baccalaureate as they attend the UTC for a specialist curriculum concentrating, in the main on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

82% of students were accepted at their first choice university, including Will Barnes who moved on to study Computer Science at Cambridge University, having achieved A* in all four of his A-levels.
We’re delighted that our employment focused curriculum offer has led to a significant majority of our students being offered world class apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships at Williams F1, Jaguar Land Rover, Mini/BMW, Laing O’Rouke, Oxford Space Systems, X-Trac, RPS water, National Rail, STFC and CCFE.
