Information about this school

Engineering UTC Northern Lincolnshire (Humber UTC) opened in September 2015. The UTC is funded by the Department for Education and co-sponsored by Phillips 66, Jacobs, Cristal, Singleton Birch, British Steel and North Lincolnshire Council. The UTC also works in partnership with the University of Hull. A new principal was appointed in June 2017 and a new assistant principal in September 2017. The college was previously known as Humber UTC and changed its name on 31 January 2018, now operating as Engineering UTC Northern Lincolnshire. The UTC offers technical qualifications in engineering, as well as GCSEs and A levels. The UTC admits pupils from the Scunthorpe region and beyond. Pupils study their technical subject for a substantial proportion of the week. The college day is longer than in most secondary schools. A very high proportion of pupils and students across all age groups are boys. The UTC is small, compared with the average secondary school. In its first year, pupils were admitted into Year 10 and Year 12.

Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The new principal has made a considerable difference in a very short time to the quality of education that the college offers. His vision, enthusiasm and passion are crucial to the continuous development of the college. There is strong capacity for further improvement. Good teaching and learning are enabling all pupils, including the most able pupils, disadvantaged pupils and pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, to make, at least, good progress from their starting points. Pupils and students have a strong commitment to learning and demonstrate strong work-related skills and attitudes. They are proud of their college. In key stage 4, the attainment of pupils in English and mathematics is above the national average. The University Technical College (UTC) is supported and challenged by knowledgeable, effective governors and committed and enthusiastic business partners. Governors are highly supportive and enhance links with the world of work. The relationships between staff, pupils and students in the 16-19 provision are very positive and promote a culture of respect. Behaviour in lessons and around the site is good and pupils take pride in their business-like uniform Students? progress on 16 to 19 study programmes was below average, for the first cohort, in both academic and vocational courses. Post-16 students? personal development has not been supported well enough by the previous provision of enrichment, work-related learning opportunities and awareness of fundamental British values. Actions of the new leaders are beginning to have an impact and standards are improving. Leaders have done effective work to improve attendance. However, it remains below the national average for both key stage 4 and key stage 5, including the attendance of disadvantaged pupils.
