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.

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.

At KS5 students can follow A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Level 3 BTEC National qualifications in Applied Science. Our mission is to Educate, Engage and Enthuse a new generation of scientifically minded and literate young people.
