UTC Oxfordshire ranks third for its sixth form results, out of 82 schools and colleges in Oxfordshire, sitting just behind two local independent schools.
The government league tables, also published this month, highlight that UTC Oxfordshire’s 16-18 provision ranks in the top 1% for results across the country, coming in an impressive 36 out of 4,311 schools in England.
With a progress score of 0.55, UTC Oxfordshire is ‘well above average’ with 43.8% of students last year achieving AAB or higher in at least two facilitating subjects.
Students at sixth form can study A Levels, a vocational qualification in engineering, science or business, or a combination of these. The curriculum is chosen and designed with the expertise and advice of the UTCs industry partners and all the subjects offered are highly regarded, both by high-tech employers and universities.
Last summer, Year 13 students secured highly sought-after apprenticeships with leading industry employers including BMW Mini, Science and Technology Facilities Council and Airbus. Students also achieved places with top 20 Russell Group universities, including University of Oxford, University of Exeter and University of Warwick.
Already this year, sixth form students are receiving offers through for September from top universities including University of Cambridge, Durham University and University of Exeter.
UTC Oxfordshire Principal, Owain Johns, said: “We are delighted with this deserved recognition of the fantastic work of our students and staff. We’ve all worked incredibly hard to transform the lives of our students since opening back in 2015 and this proves, yet again, that this innovative educational concept works.”
UTC Oxfordshire are holding a Sixth Form Open Event, Careers Fair and Year 10 Information Evening on Wednesday 26 February. Registrations can be made via the ‘Events’ page on the UTC Oxfordshire website.
