What the school says...

If you have a growing interest in computing science and engineering, enjoy learning through doing and want to benefit from the latest technology in learning, then the UTC Reading option could be right for you. Students who thrive with a high level of support and who want to learn in an environment that feels more like being at work than at school will find UTC Reading a good fit.

UTC Reading is a new University Technical College, an innovative approach to learning that offers specialist programmes alongside traditional subjects.

UTC Reading opened its doors in September 2013 and welcomed girls and boys aged 14 to 19 within a 15 mile radius of its campus on Crescent Road, Reading RG1 5RQ.

The specialist curriculum planned by UTC Reading, which combines technical with hands-on practical learning, will appeal to secondary school-aged pupils interested in computer science and/or engineering, who are keen on pursuing and developing their talents in these areas.
