Site Accessibility

Berkeley Green UTC is a new school and the buildings are built to comply with all disability legislation. There are automatic doors at reception and a lift to all floors large enough to accommodate most self-propelled and electrically powered wheelchairs. The building features an acoustic treatment to ceilings to improve audibility for young people with hearing impairments; disabled user toilets and a fully accessible wet room for non-ambulant learners.

The Riverside Cafeteria is an older building and currently has manually opening doors. Some disabled users may require assistance to open these. There is currently no disabled access to the outside patio area of the cateteria.

There is plenty of parking for disabled people with level access from these bays to the building.

Transport to the school via bus is fully accessible at the bus stop at the western end of the car park.

About the site

The new £15million UTC is based at the former Berkeley Laboratories; the site has been at the cutting edge of science and technology for over forty years, mainly in support of the commercialisation of nuclear power.

The adjoining Berkeley Power Station (now disused) generated clean, safe electricity for over thirty years, until it entered a decommissioning phase in 1989. At its peak the power station and laboratories employed nearly 2,000 local people.

The Berkeley power station was the first commercial nuclear power station, Archive information can be found here Berkeley Power Station
