Message from the
Thomas Telford UTC has been established to
provide the young people of Wolverhampton and the
surrounding region a unique combination of excellent
academic achievement and first-class preparation for
their future.
Mission Statement
We are proud to announce the inception of a new
school from the Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust
opening to Year 7 students from September 2020,
which will see the collaboration of the Outstanding
Thomas Telford School with the West Midlands UTC,
judged by Ofsted to be Good with Outstanding
features. We believe that the strengths of the two
schools will unite to offer our students a truly groundbreaking opportunity.
“This is a remarkable school and
a beacon of excellence.”
“The essence of why teaching leads to such effective
learning is that so much detailed planning goes into
the curriculum, so much effort goes into regularly
checking how students are doing, and so much care
and guidance is given to individuals to ensure they
achieve their best.”
Thomas Telford School - Ofsted
I am delighted to write to you about the most
exciting development in secondary education in
Wolverhampton for many years. I am honoured to
be entrusted with leading Thomas Telford UTC on
a journey that I am confident will see this flagship
establishment become the gold standard for
secondary education in Wolverhampton. I want every
child that comes to Thomas Telford UTC to be part of
the fabric of the school, and to go home every day
fulfilled and happy that they have made progress in
their learning and development.
In collaboration with our sponsors and industry leading
employer partners, we are able to offer unrivalled
opportunities for 11-18 year-olds in the region that will
allow them to go beyond their expectations. It is our
highest priority to ensure that each student gains the
very best from their time here so that they are fully
prepared for the next step of their lives.
Our partners at Thomas Telford School and the
University of Wolverhampton believe that all students
deserve the chance to flourish in an exceptional
environment that offers access to cutting-edge
technology and unique, hands-on experiences.
Together, we will provide our students with the perfect
combination of academic and technical excellence in
preparation for the world of work and the fantastic
opportunities that await them.
The innovative and distinct curriculum that we offer
both inspires our students and prepares them for an
outstanding future. I am excited not only about the
planned expansion of our unique and wonderful
school, but even more so about the individual growth
of each of our students over the coming years.
“Employers contribute impressively to many aspects
of school life and are extensively involved in the
school as patrons, partners and mentors.”
“The curriculum sets the school apart from more
traditional secondary schools.”
“The school’s work to develop students’ employability
skills is particularly successful. Through regular
employer led group projects students develop highorder communication skills and learn to work as part
of a team.”
