We aim to develop learners who are not only confident in subject knowledge but strong communicators, thinkers and inquirers. We want toinspire our students to seek an understanding of the wider world around them in Geography. The Leigh UTC is a STEM-based provision, but our learners enjoy and value their studies in Humanities and see the relevance of the subject to the rest of their studies and to their futures.

Our Principal, Governors, teaching and support staff believe wholeheartedly in creating opportunities for lifelong success for our young people and believe that exam success is just one aspect in achieving this.

Curriculum is king and we do things a little differently to other schools or colleges because we believe the most effective way to educate our students is to make our learning more hands-on.
