Surrey County Council backs technical college bid in Guildford

A university technical college (UTC) with a focus on computing and engineering may be established in Guildford.

Surrey County Council, alongside Royal Holloway, University of London, wants to submit a bid to the Department for Education (DfE) in October.

Initial plans to form the academy trust were approved at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

UTCs are smaller than traditional schools and are not selective.
