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 ground-breaking 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.”
