UTC Oxfordshire

Opening Arrangements

After a busy week of planning and preparation we are all looking forward to welcoming students on Monday morning.


The UTC will be open from 7.45 with a welcome breakfast being served from 8am in Elements Cafe.


This will be a busy time around a brand new road junction and as always; Didcot will be very busy. We are aware that for some, this will be their first journey to the UTC and we want to ensure that students arrive safely and calmly at the UTC. We have factored in some flexibility into our first day plans to account for any delays or problems you may encounter.


Dates for your diary:


11th Sep - Family BBQ from 4-6pm - a chance to meet UTC students, parents and staff in an informal environment. Your son or daughter will then be able to take you on a private tour of the UTC.


15th Sep - Welcome Evening from 7pm - Welcome from Owain Johns and the team, an opportunity for you to learn more about the systems and how we can work together to ensure the best possible progress for you son of daughter.


Please register if you would like to attend, for the family BBQ click here and the welcome evening click here.


Parentpay - please send your student with a little money, in case of any teething problems in this first week. For a guide - no meal is more than £2.75. Menus can be found on the Parent and Pioneers Facebook pages.


Media - There will be newspapers and television cameras in the UTC on Monday. If you do not wish your child to be a part of media events within the UTC please complete this form. If you do not complete this form, we will assume that consent is given.


We look forward to meeting students on Monday, and hope to see a number of parents at the Welcome event on Friday.


Kind regards,


Owain Johns
