Public Consultation

Medway UTC is proposing some changes to the current admission policy as we are planning to admit students from Year 9, and Year 10, starting September 2019.  Please see admissions criteria below:

Medway UTC welcomes any comments regarding these proposed admission arrangements. Please write or email comments to Miss J Legge on the following email address: or by letter (Medway UTC, South Side Three Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4FQ) by Wednesday 31st January. Please head your response ‘Admissions Consultation’. 

The purpose of the consultation will be to receive feedback on the proposed changes, and for the responses to then be collated and presented to our Board of Governors for full consideration. The outcome of the consultation will be posted on our website in due course. 

We look forward to hearing from you. 

Admissions Policy:

Medway UTC is committed to a straightforward, open, fair and transparent admissions arrangement. The school acts fully in accordance with the School Admissions Code (as revised February 2012), the School Admissions Appeals Code and admissions law as they apply to academies.

These admissions arrangements support the wider ethos of Medway, as a hub of innovation and Medway UTC aspires to be the 14-19 establishment of choice for both pupils and employers across the region.

In developing our admissions policy, we have looked to strike a balance between admitting Medway students as well as students from other districts whilst minimising the impact on any individual school. We have also ensured that no individual will be advantaged in gaining admission to the UTC by virtue of where they live.

Casual Admissions

All applications for admissions for pupils in Years 10 – 13 received after 1 September should be made directly to the school. The UTC will then consider all such applications and if the year group applied for has a place available, admit the child unless one of the permitted reliefs apply. Should a student be considered to be hard to place under Medway’s Fair Access Protocols, the admission request will be referred to Medway to be considered by the Fair Access panel, rather than follow the normal admissions process. Please contact our Admissions Officer, Mrs South, if you would like to apply for a place. If there are no places available in the year group then the application will go on our waiting list.
