About Us

University Technical College (UTC) Sheffield City Centre, part of the UTC Sheffield Academy Trust, is a school for 13 to 19 year olds, specialising in Advanced Engineering & Manufacturing and Creative & Digital Media. Students can start with us in Y10 or Y12 to study a combination of GCSEs/A Levels and a technical specialism (OCR Cambridge Technicals and Nationals). We opened in 2013, and had our first set of graduates on 2015, who came out with fantastic results, especially in their technical qualifications.

Located in Sheffield’s vibrant creative quarter, the City Centre campus is in the hub of creative and digital businesses in Sheffield. With capacity for 600 students, when full, our class sizes are smaller than average, allowing staff to spend more time with the students.

At the City Centre UTC we offer a dynamic, career-focused and supportive learning environment working in partnership with a wide range of local engineering and creative and digital employers.

Our state-of-the-art building is equipped with high quality, industry-standard facilities, including engineering mini factories, a prototyping workshop, a CNC machine suite, an Arduino and Raspberry Pi workshop, a sound studio and much more.

In February 2016 we had our first Ofsted inspection, achieving a ‘Good’ rating; Ofsted praised UTC Sheffield City Centre on establishing a business-like culture and technical curriculum closely aligned to the needs of employers and universities.
