UTC Guildford 

Offering 14-18 year olds a great deal more than traditional schools


Breaking boundaries in academic excellence

Project Update

It is with regret that we post this message to inform you of the cancellation of the project to open a University Technical College in Guildford.  Unfortunately the Department for Education is no longer supportive of the project and has decided not to proceed further with it.

The Trustees of the proposed UTC are extremely disappointed.  We believe we had a strong proposal and had made good progress towards setting up an exciting academic and technical option for 14 - 18 year olds in Guildford and the surrounding area.

CGI, Royal Holloway, University of London, Guildford College, Guildford Education Partnership and Surrey County Council remain strongly committed to high quality technical education and to addressing the skills gap in this area.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has provided support and encouragement to the project.  We know that a number of organisations and individuals have committed time and energy to the project and we are grateful for this.

With kind regards

Guildford UTC Trustees
