Welcome from the Headteacher
We are delighted to welcome you to the website of SGS Berkeley Green UTC, a specialist school with a clear focus on the careers of the future. Let us tell you about what makes Berkeley Green unique.
Our mission is to enable young people to become successful STEM specialists by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, networks and personal qualities necessary to flourish in their professional and private lives.
We have two specialisms: engineering and digital technology, and a curriculum that enables students to blend academic and vocational education. STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) underpin our curriculum because they unlock an enormous variety of study and career opportunities for young adults. We deliver our teaching of these subjects in unrivalled, state-of-the-art facilities.
Employability is also truly at the heart of our culture and ethos. Students benefit from a very wide range of high quality opportunities to work with local employers and participate in industry-related activities. Every student participates in work experience. This helps us develop the ‘soft skills’ so necessary to future success, like teamwork, resilience and communication.
Of course, we don’t neglect other aspects of the curriculum and students can pick subjects which complement their STEM choices, as well as enjoying a range of extra-curricular activities. Literacy is a high priority for us; we strive to ensure that every student develops greater written and verbal fluency.
In short, we’re immensely proud of our school. There is so much more that we would love to tell you. Please take the time to explore our website and get in touch if you have any questions, or if you would like to look around the UTC. We are confident that you will be impressed.
