Earlier this year the decision was made to pause recruitment at the Sir Simon Milton Westminster UTC while consideration was given to our future.
Since that time there have been a significant number of discussions with the Department for Education about what the next steps for the UTC should be.
Following this, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the School System, Baroness Berridge, has approved the substantial decision to close the Sir Simon Milton UTC at the end of the 2021/22 academic year, subject to the outcome of a listening period. At the point of closure all students will have completed their current courses.
While this is not the final decision, it is an important milestone and the listening period is being entered into so that we can further capture the views of our community.
The listening period runs from 15th September to 15th October.
