THE Mayor of Hillingdon will be joining future students of Heathrow University Technical College and current pupils of Northwood School later today to bury a time capsule.

The capsule will be placed near the new UTC building, which is opening in September and will be adjacent to Northwood School.

Items in the capsule include essays from students saying why they like Northwood School, old photographs of the buildings, the current prospectus and newsletter, a school tie, plans and images for the new Heathrow UTC and a newspaper.

The mayor, Cllr Allan Kauffman, said: "We are delighted to be part of informing future generations of how education at Northwood School has taken great strides forward by being developed in tandem with the Heathrow Aviation Engineering UTC."

The new £10m aviation engineering school is a new concept college for those aged 14- 19. The partnership includes Brunel University, Uxbridge College, Hillingdon Council, QED Academy Trust and major employers British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Heathrow Airport and RAF Northolt.
