NTC boasts a state-of-the-art building that has been specifically designed to facilitate students’ learning, support extra-curricular activities and ultimately provide an innovative educational experience for our young people.
It was designed in the shape of our school logo, with large learning zones that enable students to develop their oracy skills and teamwork skills through collaborative working. With open spaces and tables facing each other, students can engage in discussion, challenge opinions and develop skills which will enable them to make sound judgements and analyse the world around them.
Other key features include:
- Modern classrooms
- Well-resourced science laboratories
- Drama studio
- Music suite with practice rooms and iMac computers
- Fully equipped Design Technology rooms
- First class sports hall
- Climbing wall
- Multiple sports pitches
- A dedicated sixth form area.
Being a technology school, we benefit from excellent ICT resources, with all students having access to their own school laptop to use throughout the school day. We have also invested heavily in Technology related equipment, including Computer Aided Manufacture and Engineering equipment.
The school’s technology specialism has a significant impact on learning, particularly through the practically based courses such as engineering, and improves attainment for a growing number of students. The widespread, well-planned use of information technology also promotes students’ progress very effectively.
Our facilities also mean that we can continue to grow as a hub for the local community. We gladly welcome local residents, primary schools, businesses and other organisations to the school so they too can benefit from our excellent educational and recreational facilities.
