New Watford UTC opens for business

The Watford UTC, a new University Technical College based on Colonial Way, opened its doors to students for the first time earlier this week.

The specialist school, which caters for students aged 14-19, celebrated its first day with an opening event attended by parents, governors and sponsors, as well as Watford MP Richard Harrington. Guests were treated to an afternoon tea taster session, served by students studying Hospitality and Event Management.

Richard Harrington commented: “An awful lot of work has gone into setting the UTC up over the last couple of years and it is great to see this has paid off, with so many local students excited about their new school. I really believe that this type of school, with a real focus on properly preparing students for whatever they want to do next, is of great benefit to Watford and I am really proud of how it has come together”
