GPUTC is a small but growing school where every member of staff makes a profound difference to children’s life chances. GPUTC is particularly proud of the most recent Ofsted report where in October 2022 it was graded ‘Good’ in all areas The Ofsted report stated that:

  • Pupils behave well. They say they want to learn
  • Leaders are ambitious for all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).
  • The curriculum is well designed, and the content progressively builds upon pupils’ prior learning. This allows pupils, including sixth-form students, to develop important knowledge and skills over time.
  • Teachers have expert knowledge. They use subject-specific language. Pupils confidently use this language when talking about their learning.
  • Pupils respond well to leaders’ clear expectations of behaviour. As soon as they join the school, pupils feel well supported and build strong relationships with other pupils.
  • Leaders provide opportunities for pupils, including those in the sixth form, to engage with employers, UTC sponsors and local universities. This gives them a solid foundation upon which to plan their next steps.

Our proven approach over more than a decade has elevated us to a respected and admired academy trust, a national leader in education and a source of great pride to the communities we serve.
