This is what two current Year 10 students had to say about studying at The Leigh UTC…..
What attracted you to joining The Leigh UTC?
BP: I was ‘hooked’ straight away on the open day: the engineering facilities are great and I like the feel of the school.
MS: The location of the UTC makes it easy for me to get to. I also like the amount of support I receive from staff as it makes a big difference to me.
What aspects of our UTC do you enjoy the most?
BP: I really, really enjoy the engineering and the chance to work on projects I never had the chance to do previously.
MS: Definitely the engineering. My old school did not have any facilities to compare with here at the UTC, being able to make high-quality projects.
Where do you see yourself in two, five and ten years?
BP: In two years’ time I would like to be completing my A Levels here at the UTC. In five years’ time I want to be at University studying engineering and in ten years’ time I would like to have my own business specialising in engineering.
MS: In two years’ time I want to be completing my Post 16 at the UTC. In five years’ time I would like to have a place at Sandhurst Military University. In then years’ time I can see myself as a high-ranking officer in the military.
