Welcome to Daventry UTC

Our Vision

The vision for our students is that they become lifelong learners, outstanding citizens, leaders and innovators.

Daventry UTC offers an excellent, career-focused education for 600 students between the ages of 14 and 19 who are interested in “new technologies” or who are motivated by technical subjects.

The education and breadth of experience provided by Daventry UTC will match the best provision in the state or independent sectors. It will help you to achieve the qualifications and skills that are highly valued by employers, and the opportunity to start developing an inspiring career.

Based in the heart of England in West Northamptonshire, Daventry UTC has a superb and accessible location with a long standing technological and manufacturing base to draw upon.

Underpinning our vision for Daventry UTC is a commitment to:

  • Provide an excellent, student-centred education for 14-19 year olds
  • Develop highly desirable skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics
  • Deliver career-focused, practical and technical skills training
  • Harness employer partnerships to ensure qualifications and skills training are relevant to the world of work
  • Focus on new, sustainable technologies to promote a “cleaner, greener county”

Our Ethos

Emphasis will be on high standards and excellence at every level.  The Daventry UTC will create an outstanding learning environment where students will be passionate and committed to developing the skills required for a career in sustainable and related new technologies in construction, engineering or environmental sustainability.

Daventry UTC will foster a learning ethos, which promotes a spirit of enquiry, delivering young people that are ‘skilled, professional and enterprising’ by equipping them to share in a journey of technological, professional and personal development. We believe that each individual is unique and has his/her own special talent, which can be nurtured, stimulated and developed in a positive, balanced, innovative and rich environment where there is fairness, understanding, recognition of achievement and shared values.  We want every student to enjoy their education, to achieve to their potential and to develop emotionally, socially, vocationally and academically.

Our Values

Daventry UTC is built upon a foundation of traditional values that underpin all that we do.  Our shared values are:

  • Respect for others and tolerance
  • Honesty and integrity
  • Determination and professionalism
  • Politeness, courtesy and punctuality

About us

Daventry UTC is a unique institution; part of a new concept in education which offers students aged 14 - 19 the chance to follow a high quality, technically-orientated course of study, in facilities equipped to the highest standards. The UTC’s focus on sustainable and related new technologies in engineering, sustainable construction, and environmental sustainability reflects the growing demand by businesses in the UK for well-qualified technical specialists.

Studying at Daventry UTC helps students get a head start on the career ladder. With the academic and technical qualifications students have the opportunity to complete at the UTC, they can progress direct to work, high level apprenticeships or university, following dynamic career pathways that could take them anywhere in the world. We want our students to be part of the next generation of engineering, construction and technology leaders. The curriculum is skilfully contextualised to deliver an innovative blend of academic and technical studies, shaped by our sponsors: Moulton College, The University of Northampton and world class industry partners.

We acknowledge that moving to a new College at age 14 or 16 is a huge decision for students and their parents/carers alike. However, we also hear from countless employers that young people leave education without the required skills and experience for them to undertake a meaningful role in the workplace. Guided by our emphasis on developing employability, business and personal skills, and informed by an integrated core and technical curriculum, every student should expect to leave Daventry UTC with a desire to achieve excellent standards and be ready to progress either into employment or further/higher education.
