Age 14 to 19? Love Technology? Live in or near SW19? State of the Art Education is on Your Doorstep – Free!
Do you come from SW19 -or anywhere on the local rail line -and your teenager loves technology and / or computers? If that’s YES you need to know about the new school opening this September just down the District Line. It really is radically different from a usual school – however excellent – and could be perfect for the kind of young mind that is yearning for a chance to put knowledge into practice.
Help with an application to the Sir Simon Milton Westminster UTC in Victoria is available now from Judy E, through Private Tuition in SW19. The old image of engineers with oily rags lacking conversational skills is well-dead. Today’s tecchies need all the soft skills.
Excellent English is also valued. Students will study for GCSEs and A Levels in English, as well as core science, maths, technology and engineering. Judy E’s Private Tuition in SW19 specializes in English – plus application and interview skills.
Within 20 minutes of Wimbledon Station, Westminster UTC (University Technical College) is a free, non-selective school within the state system. It has a stunning new building in the heart of London
Changing the World with Technology
The qualities this UTC seeks in its first student intake are 14-19 year olds who have a passion for technology and are “hungry to make things happen, are curious about the world, and who would enjoy being in a working-style environment,” says Principal Karen Barber.
High standards of behaviour are the norm. However restless they may have been with conventional schooling, students are expected to be courteous, respectful, and fully attuned to teamwork. Just as you need to be at work.

Westminster UTC already has partnerships in place with Network Rail, Transport for London, BT Fleet, Alstom, Sir Robert McAlpine and Land Securities. The companies will work with the college and its students to ensure that core subjects such as maths and engineering are learnt through real practical projects as well as classroom or workshop theory.
Also supporting learners are the University of Westminster itself, and Sir Simon Milton Foundation. Information on grants, awards and bursaries will be available at every step, and there will be enhanced Mentoring to see pupils are launched into University, Higher Education (top universities included) Paid Traineeships, paid Apprenticeships or even straight into work.
