At Saint Thomas More Catholic School, our curriculum vision is to enable pupils to achieve academic excellence with wider social and spiritual awareness and responsibilities in a caring and supportive environment.
The curriculum is underpinned by a broad set of common values and purposes. These are:
- encouraging in pupils a deeper knowledge and understanding of key ideas and concepts through a variety of learning methods.
- providing flexibility in curriculum design and subject choice so that students are able to personalise their learning with regard to their ability and interests whilst retaining breadth in their studies.
- ensuring that the delivery of learning and teaching is of the highest quality.

Key Stage 4
The Key Stage 4 curriculum is designed to increase the knowledge and understanding of students and prepare them for final examinations and assessment. Students will study both vocational and GCSE courses in a wide variety of subjects. The curriculum is tailored to each individual student through the options process.
