Welcome from the headteacher

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.

    Headteacher’s notice – 8 November 2019 - I do hope that this notice finds you all well and ready to brave the increasingly cold weather. It would seem that winter is well and truly upon us. With that in mind I would be grateful if all parents/carers would impress upon their children the wisdom of wearing a coat, gloves, scarf and a hat at this time of the year. Continue reading ...
    Headteacher’s notice – 18 October 2019 - Hello, can you believe where the last seven weeks have gone? They seem to have passed us by in the blink of an eye. This seems all the more real when I stand still long enough to think about our Year 13 students, some of whom have already started to receive their initial round of offers from UCAS re their university choices.
