School profile

Ron Dearing UTC

Ron Dearing University Technical College is situated in the centre of Hull and we have 600 student places with students joining us at the start of Year 10 or Year 12. Working in partnership with the University of Hull and the region’s leading employers, we provide our students with a unique, employer-led education that gives them the edge in terms of higher education and employment opportunities and fast-tracks them into exciting and lucrative careers.
Our curriculum comprises a range of academic, technical and professional qualifications (including GCSEs and A Levels). These have been selected in partnership with our employer partners specifically to develop the knowledge and skills that industry is crying out for.
We specialise in ‘STEAM’: Sciences, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. Our students have the unique opportunity to take the theory they learn and apply it to real projects designed and delivered by our University and Employer Partners. This both extends their theoretical understanding and, crucially, enables them to develop their personal, employability and technical skills in a real work environment. No other school or college in the area can offer this. Neither can they match our learning environment: our facilities are state-of-the-art, making us the most technology advanced school in the country.
In addition to our qualifications, we prioritise the development of personal and employability skills, including leadership, teamwork, independent learning, project management, innovation and creative thinking. We also ensure that our students have the information they need to lead happy, safe and heathy lifestyles.
