Where are they now?

Catching up with some of our past students

Welcome to the career profiles area of our website, where we have gathered the experiences & life stories kindly shared by some of our past pupils who have gone on to achieve wonderful things since leaving St Thomas More Catholic School. We hope that these profiles can be used by our current students who may currently be unsure about the next steps to take in their educational journey. We encourage our students to take the time to read through the experiences of students who have been through the process of selecting their Key Stage 4 Option subjects and then Sixth Form subjects, and how those subjects helped to shape them as the independent and hard-working individuals that they are today.

You will see below that we have included the different career routes that some of our contributors have travelled after leaving school, have a read through them all and see if you are inspired to follow in their footsteps. We are very appreciative of all of our past pupils that have contributed to this and we are so proud to be able to call them a part of our wider-school community.

We will be adding new profiles as the weeks go on and we hope that by sharing these we are reminding our students that their future opportunities and possibilities are limitless. If any of our students would like any further information regarding careers or would like to speak to a member of staff about the Year 8 Options process, then please contact Mr O’Connor, Mr Bishell, Mr Virgo, Mr Dawson, Miss Gilbert, Mr Rowley or their Form Tutor in school and we would be happy to help.
