WHERE STUDENTS EMBRACE DISCOVERY AND RECEIVE THE VERY BEST OF TOMORROW’S
EDUCATION TODAY, EMPOWERING AND PREPARING THEM FOR A SUCCESSFUL FUTURE
Shireland Biomedical UTC, based in the centre of West Bromwich, is a non-selective 11-18 school serving the whole of Sandwell.
We are a school that is leading the way in educational innovation as the UK’s first University Technical College (UTC) specialising in Health and the Health Sciences.
Our commitment to surpassing expectations is reflected in our broad and inclusive curriculum, combining academic excellence with practical experiences.
We focus on providing a technical education in our specialism and science, technology, English, maths
(STEM) subjects and enhancing learning experiences through our partnerships with industry experts and local universities.
Our unique curriculum integrates academic subjects with hands-on learning experiences and employability training, which help prepare students to become successful in the modern workforce.
In September 2022, we welcomed our first year 7 cohort, who have access to cutting-edge technology and facilities to support their learning, including an immersive room and mock hospital ward.
As part of the well-established Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust, we work collaboratively to provide additional experiences for our students.
We strongly believe in equipping our students with essential skills and knowledge for a successful and fulfilling future, while simultaneously nurturing their personal growth and development.
We aspire to develop individuals who are not only academically proficient but also decent, upstanding members of the community.
We want our students to feel safe, happy, ambitious for themselves and respectful of all.
Our Key Stage 3 Literacy for Life curriculum enriches the experiences of our students and facilitates a smooth transition from primary to secondary school.
Year 7 students have 17 hours with the same teacher who acts as a direct point of contact for you at the Academy.
At Shireland Biomedical UTC we are committed to supporting our students in fulfilling their potential, not only academically but also personally.
We go above and beyond to support students to achieve their goals through providing them with an enriching and developmental curriculum.
