About the subjects and courses we offer.

Curriculum vision

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 3

Students in Key Stage 3 follow a curriculum designed to aid transition from Key Stage 2. It is a curriculum that enables, empowers and encourages, providing students with the opportunity to work in an exciting, creative and successful competence led environment.

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.
