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.

We fully appreciate that remote learning is far from ideal and certainly not what we would like to see happening for too much longer. Continue reading …

    Headteacher’s notice – 3 April 2020

    Hello to you all. If ever our more remote/virtual methods of communication were to find their place, I think we would all agree that this is it. May I begin by saying a hugely heart felt and sincere thank you to each and everyone of you for the tremendous support, encouragement and levels of engagement given on the ‘home front’ during these last two weeks. I am only too well aware that this is not something any of you as Parents/Carers thought you would find yourself doing but doing it you are and, may I say, in grand style too. Continue reading …
