As we come towards the end of another busy but successful half-term I would like to wish you all a happy holiday. The school is open for three days over the break in order to help support students’ revision for examinations in June.

Soccer ball

On Wednesday 20th May, St Thomas More Catholic School took a Year 9 Boys/Girls Team to compete in the Team Sixteen Football Tournament. On this particular day, St Georges Park was host to the England Ladies Football Team, preparing for the World Cup – and they were visited by Prince William to wish them luck!

Rosary Prayer Group

Year 7 students of St Thomas More Catholic School, Willenhall have been learning about the Rosary on Wednesdays during Form Time each term. They have learnt about the mysteries of the Rosary which teach us the life of Jesus which Mary witnessed. A selective group of Year 7 students Alex Smith, Anastasia James and Callum Ferguson with Year 9 student Dominic Lockett made a presentation on the Rosary at a Year 10 assembly for 10MRS.

Current legislation regarding the way in which schools and Local Authorities are required to monitor and measure the attendance of their students has changed.

Examination reform

As we are now working under a new government, it is likely that we will continue with a number of examination reforms. We will try to keep parents fully informed and pass on relevant information as we receive it.

Gospel choir

Last Wednesday, 29th April, saw this year’s Spring Concert.

It was a fantastic evening of entertainment, with students from every Year group taking part.

Race night winners

St Thomas More Catholic School went to the dogs to raise money for Dementia U.K. when their new Friends of St Thomas More society staged a race night and barbecue.

Set up only last December the Friends of St Thomas More has already raised enough money for the school to start creating their own Peace Garden in front of the top Willenhall school.
