Welcome to St Thomas More Catholic Academy

Head Teacher Welcome

St Thomas More Catholic Academy is a Catholic 11-18 academy of over 1000 students which is part of the All Saints Catholic Collegiate.  Alongside four Catholic primary academies; we work innovatively and at the cutting edge to ensure outstanding transition and progress from Foundation Stage to Sixth Form.

At St Thomas More Catholic Academy, we consistently strive to provide the very best to all our students. As a Catholic school, we offer an education firmly based upon our Gospel values and our Mission statement puts ‘our community’ at the heart of all we do.

We fervently believe that a major strength of our school is the positive relationships that exist within it and within our local and Catholic community. We work very closely with all our partner primary schools to ensure the smooth transition to high school for all our students. Furthermore, we consider it important to get to know the families of our pupils, so that we can work together for the benefit of every child placed in our care. The school values the excellent support it receives from parents and carers.

We have a team of conscientious and professional staff who consistently encourage their students to be the best they can be.  We aim for the highest standard in all that we do and we can only achieve success with the co-operation of our students and parents.  Working together in partnership we believe that anything and everything is possible.

Our mission and values are reflected in all aspects of school including our curriculum, which is designed specifically to cater for the individual needs and aspirations of every student and in our orderly, safe and happy community that respects and values all its members.

This is an exciting time in our history; record examination success last year, a major new build and refurbishment programme, conversion to Academy status - part of All Saints Catholic Collegiate and the appointment of a new Headteacher. We look forward to you joining us in this exciting future.
