Welcome to Greater Peterborough UTC

The Greater Peterborough University Tehcnical College (GPUTC) is a brand new school for 14 - 19 year olds specialising in engineering and the built environment whilst simultaneously teaching GCSE's and A Levels.

The GPUTC is a traditional school with all the facilities and assistance you would expect plus the benefits of links with employers, guaranteed job interviews on student graduation and an opportunity to learn by doing through one of our technical specialisms.

The GPUTC also offers employer projects, master classes and workshops that will give you real-life work experience.  Sponsors of the GPUTC are Anglian Water, Peterborough Regional College, Larkfleet Group, Anglia Ruskin University and Marshall Aerospace.

About us

Join us - and help to build the future. The Greater Peterborough University Technical College (GPUTC) offers a world class technical education that will give you the skills and hands on experience employers want. Working with their head and hands, our students will get the training they need to become the sustainable
engineers, builders, designers and architects of the future.
We offer:
New facilities
Our new £12 million, sustainable purpose-built school is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. Our small classes mean more one-to-one tuition in a high tech working environment. We offer real-life work experience to put what you learn into practice.
A new approach
Major employers sponsor us and our students. They need high calibre people
with the skills we teach. This fresh approach means real employers will be directly involved in your education, setting projects that will see you learning by doing – completing challenging projects and testing them in the real world.
New opportunities
We want to make sure every student graduates to a job, apprenticeship or to further study at college or university. We are so confident in what we have to offer that we guarantee all our student graduates job interviews with our employer sponsors. GPUTC student graduates will have both academic and technical qualifications in one of our two specialisms – engineering OR the built environment. If you want to be one of the people shaping the future, fill in the application form o our website, or altetrnatively apply through here.

Learner success

There will be over 55 UTCs in the country by 2018 specialising in subjects such as engineering, science, creative and digital industries, entrepreneurship and IT.

Following a student survey of 850 UTC students, when comparing their UTC to their previous school, UTCs came out top in all aspects. See below the findings for why students choose to move to UTCs:

  • 95% of students say due to the facilities and equipment
  • 92%  of students state because it is the hands on learning approach at UTCs           
  • 85% of students do so because of  links with businesses
  • 90%  of students choose a UTC due to the opportunities for work experience
  • 89% of students choose to move to a UTC due to the technical specialism

The GPUTC can promise you all of this and more. Come and join us in September 2018 to become an engineer, builder, designer or architect of the future.
