North East Futures UTC


NBS Atrium Tom Helyer



Dear all Parents, Carers,

We are reducing our onsite staff down to the very minimal for the safety of all.

Our Virtual School is running well and I have received good feedback from students and staff that good learning and work is happening at home.

The most common issue so far I have seen are:

·       issues with borrowed laptops – this is being addressed as top priority by our technical team – and we will be offering remote support to get things sorted asap (please e-mail [email protected] who will liaise with the IT team)

·       issues with work overload – we will work to try to spread out the work more evenly – as long as students are working for their 3.5 hours we have asked them to that is fine – they should work in best priority order – better too much to do than too little!

Students should NOT come to school to collect laptops (we will arrange delivery if there are any more that need to be loaned) or to collect stuff from lockers etc. –they are now at risk of a police fine.

Stay safe, stay positive, stay learning.

Kind regards,

Dan Sydes

What is a UTC?

University Technical Colleges or UTCs take a balance of a strong core curriculum and technical qualifications to give their students a more rounded experience of school. UTCs also have great support from local high-profile businesses as well as a leading University sponsor. North East Futures UTC is no exception. Sponsored by the University of Sunderland and partnered with a great roster of North East Companies. To find out more about UTCs why not visit the UTC website.
