Why choose Health Futures UTC?

In September 2015 we opened the doors of our brand new multi-million pound building in West Bromwich.

We are now accepting applications from young people living in Birmingham, Sandwell, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall, Solihull and North Worcestershire who would like to join us as Year 10 or Year 12 students in September 2020.

Student Life at Health Futures UTC


The working day

At Health Futures we’ve designed our working day to closely reflect a typical business day. This means an 08:30 am start and a 3:50pm finish Monday to Friday. 

Dress code

Our dress code is simple.  In year 10 and 11, students wear black trousers and a jacket along with a white shirt and a school tie.  In sixth form, students wear smart business dress to help students look and feel like young healthcare professionals. Some Health Futures-branded items are worn, for example science lab coats and some sports kit.

Sports and wellbeing

Taking advantage of a roof-top games area and state-of-the-art gym and fitness suite, all Health Futures students participate in regular physical education (PE) sessions. This is not only good fun and helps to develop sports skills and techniques, it also supports the overall wellbeing agenda of the school. Various aspects of fitness and wellbeing will be integrated into learner’s core subjects, options and technical project work.
