In England, City Technology Colleges (CTCs) are independent schools which charge no fees as their recurrent costs are paid by the DfES and businesses within the private sector. City Technology Colleges specialise in teaching mainly technology based subjects such technology, science and maths.

CTCs also forge close links with businesses and industry (mainly through their sponsors), and often their governors are directors of local or national businesses that are supporting or have supported the colleges.

The government is currently encouraging CTCs to convert into City Academies (see City Academy), although the differences between the two types of school are relatively small (the main being one being that CTCs are allowed to select pupils whilst Academies are not). Two CTC conversions are due to open as Academies in September 2005. A city academy is a type of British secondary school, of which one of the major architects was Andrew Adonis in his capacity as education advisor to the Prime Minister (now Lord Adonis, a junior Minister at the Department for Education and Skills) in the late 1990s. ...
