You may have noticed on social media the on-going work Jessica Wyatt is completing with the University of Lincoln in their new pharmacology school. Work with our three sponsors, (Siemens, Lincoln College and Lincoln University) is vital to the rich experience our students enjoy. This is complemented by a close relationship with the RAF amongst others and we are delighted that the construction company, Willmott Dixon, who was responsible for our building, won first prize at a recent construction awards’ dinner. The project managers visited the college last week and remarked on how well students and staff are looking after the building. They have offered to deliver talks to students on the cantilever method used to add the new wing to the site: another way we use industry to contextualise learning. This close relationship with employers sets us apart from other schools, providing a wealth of opportunities for work experience as well as project-based learning. The UTC does not suit all students’ career plans and we pride ourselves on ensuring they get impartial advice to achieve their potential. Thus we are delighted that Hannah Watt has been offered a sixth form place at Welbeck to pursue her personal dream. One of the pleasures of teaching is the reward of inspiring students. The Mathematics Department are extremely proud of Toby Reichelt who has been awarded a Future Teaching Scholarship in order to pursue his interest, and excellence, in Mathematics.

Please do take the time to keep up with our news, following us on Twitter (@UTCLincoln) or via our website. There is a short break coming up, starting at the end of the school day on Friday 10 February, with school recommencing on Monday 20 February. As ever, please do contact me if you have any questions. I am still hoping we have an aspiring Capability Brown who would like to advise us on our grounds and if anyone has an old motorbike in their garage they would like to donate, the Engineering department would love to hear from them.

Lincoln UTC pushes the boundaries. Next week we hear from Professor Lord: "We are living longer and 1 in 4 children born today can expect to live to be 100. This would be good news if it were not for the fact that old age is accompanied by increased illness. Professor Lord will describe in particular how the immune system declines with age making older adults more susceptible to infection and cancer. She will also discuss how this can be overcome to improve health in old age."

January is usually about challenge, whether it’s resolutions, new circumstances or simply a raised awareness of what lies ahead as students reach the mid-point in their academic year. Year 13 students are receiving offers through UCAS and this helps focus us all on the summer examination series.

It gives me much pleasure to compose my first newsletter on behalf of the staff and students of Lincoln UTC and as Interim Principal. Our careers’ programme provides excellent advice as well as exposure to a large number of businesses, employers and lecturers. Guided by the redoubtable Mrs. Doughty, Year 13 students are finalising their post-school plans and, with mock examinations just around the corner, beginning to experience the pressure of their most significant assessments yet. Our lecture programme has already begun with a survey from Addaction and a talk on Welbeck Sixth Form Defence College. There are lectures lined up with Siemens presenting on apprenticeships and Andrew Flatley from Qintiq launching a controlled assessment project. The Science Department, now with Dean Orviss at the helm, has some exciting lectures planned, including The Antikythera Project (University of Birmingham) and Professor Janet Lord (University of Birmingham – immunology and ageing). If parents would like to attend any of these events please contact me.
