Welcome from Head of School

Your journey starts here

The world ahead of us has many challenges and a desparate need for a highly-skilled workforce to invent, create and inspire. At Sir Charles Kao UTC, we do just that – providing you with the access and experience to become the scientists, developers, engineers and inventors of our future.

We are named after Sir Charles Kao, the ‘father of fibre optics’, who pioneered the development of fibre optic communication while working right here in Harlow. This talent shown within the students who join us – working now to develop the skills and knowledge that will enable you to solve the challenges of the journey ahead.

We work closely with a number of local and national employers, enabling us to provide you with the unique, technical curriculum that will start your journey. Please take a look through this prospectus to find out more about what we offer, and I look forward to welcoming you in our sixth form in September 2018.

Mrs L Tooley
Head of School
