Join us for a tour of the North East Futures UTC, sited at the heart of Newcastle, figuratively and literally.
Immediately behind the central rail station the new school sits on the site of George Stephensons Locomotive yard. The new build block, set to open in September 2018, provides simple, functional teaching space, while the listed structure is celebrated as the centre piece of the school building not only functionally but also in helping to shape its identity and reinforce its ethos.
There is an explicit connection between the legacy of innovation and entrepreneurship Victorian steam pioneers such as Stephenson and Hawthorn left on the site and the UTC’s mission to educate the inventors, engineers, thought leaders, scientists, designers and technicians of tomorrow.
Join us for the first YAPF building visit of 2018 and please feel free to join us at the pub for a drink after the tour.
Please bring with you your own PPE, including gloves and glasses.
