Thomas Telford School is a City Technology College, sponsored by The Mercers’ Company and Tarmac Holdings Limited. It was established in 1991 to pioneer new methods of education, to raise standards for its students and to share successful practice with other schools. It is now widely regarded as one of the most successful state secondary schools in England and has established three Academies in Walsall, Sandwell and Madeley.
The School offers a broad curriculum with an emphasis on Science, Mathematics, Technology and Business Education. As well as high academic standards, the School has built a tradition of first class sporting achievements and high quality performing arts.
Information for all Interested Parties
Since the outcome of the General Election, the Government's position in relation to approval of additional Free Schools has been put on hold.
Since the outcome of the General Election, the Government’s position in relation to approval of additional Free Schools has been put on hold.
Under these circumstances it is not clear if the proposal from Thomas Telford School to open a Free School will progress further. Our position is that we would process the application if the Government decides to expand the programme. We still remain very keen to provide the community of Telford and Wrekin with an all through 5 – 18 Free School and are positioned to continue our application at short notice should the opportunity arise.
If, and when, more information is available I will provide an additional update.
