I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of St Thomas More Catholic School. It is an exciting, vibrant and supportive community, blessed with wonderful young people, with whom it is a privilege to work. For me, every day is both an adventure and an opportunity to explore the wider world, and that is how we want to inspire our pupils to feel.
Since 1974, the school has earned a region-wide reputation for academic rigour, breathtaking music, art and drama, exciting sport and, most importantly, the development of socially responsible, highly creative young men and women whose approach to life and others is underpinned by Gospel values.
We are delighted to welcome children of all faiths and denominations and benefit immensely from a diverse, multi-cultural community. We are avowedly Catholic in our approach and expect all children to participate in our celebrations of God’s work.
We want the next generation not only to be equipped with outstanding academic and vocational qualifications but to share values which are underpinned by a common bond of respect for others and the world around them, endeavour and joyfulness. That is why we place a love of God at the heart of all we do.
Please find out more about St Thomas More Catholic School on this website and be assured that every child in our care will always be known, loved, and encouraged to develop as a caring, confident, young person who is ready to change the world for the better.

Hello, should you have been in to school over the last week you will notice that the display in our reception area has changed to reflect the season of Lent. Our parish notices have been printed on purple paper. Our Lenten prayer hearts decorating our prayer tree are printed on purple card and our display table is covered in purple material. The reason for using purple is because it is the colour used in the Catholic Church to denote a period of reflection and preparation. In this instance we, as a school community, have commenced our six week period of reflection in preparation for the celebration of Easter. Continue reading …
