THOMAS TELFORD UTC PROVIDES THE YOUNG PEOPLE OF WOLVERHAMPTON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA WITH A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF EXCELLENT ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT AND FIRST CLASS PREPARATION FOR THEIR FUTURE
The future is looking bright with a new school from the Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust.
It is 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 unite to offer our students a truly ground-breaking opportunity.
Ofsted reported that Thomas Telford School is “a remarkable school and a beacon of excellence”. It adds: “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.”
Equally, Ofsted has praised West Midlands UTC noting that: “Employers contribute impressively to many aspects of school life and are extensively involved in the school as patrons, partners and mentors.
“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.”
