Message from the Principal

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.

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.

Thomas Telford UTC is looking for inspirational staff to help shape an innovative approach to education. 

Thomas Telford UTC will be situated in a brand new, purpose-built building in Wolverhampton city centre at the Springfield Campus. The UTC buildings form the first stage of the £100 million regeneration of the Springfield Campus led by the University of Wolverhampton to form a national centre of excellence for Architecture and the Built Environment.
