November has been a busy month for us here at Crewe Engineering and Design UTC, from student trips to fundraising for Children in Need. This month also saw our very first open evening, which gave our students and staff the opportunity to show off the huge strides made in our development since opening.

It was a real privilege to host so many interested potential students and parents, and show the Mayor around our state-of-the-art school. The feedback we received after the event was overwhelmingly positive, and many thanks to everyone that has already applied for their place in September 2017.

Our second building is really taking shape now, with the steel infrastructure virtually complete. The roofline will be watertight by end of December and we are on track for completion in August 2017. Everyone associated with the UTC is tremendously proud of the new facility and the huge opportunities it will bring for students over the coming years.

There are still some events left before we finish for the Christmas holidays. For students wanting to join next year we have the meet the principal event on the 5th December 4:00 – 6:00. To book your slot call 01270 218150. We also have our student workshop on the 15th December 5:30 – 7:30. If you want to attend, please book your place here. This event is not to be missed!
