Headteacher's Message

Welcome to our school website. Hopefully you will find all the information you need right here but if there is something else you would like to know please contact us in the school office by telephone or email.

As a Catholic school, Christ is at the centre of all we do.  You will see this in the positive relationships that exist throughout the school as well as in our curriculum.  We are very fortunate at St. Thomas More’s as we are full to the brim with happy, well-behaved and hardworking children. We have an enormous amount of support from parents and Governors who help us to ensure the best possible educational experience for the children in our care. Whilst we challenge and support each and every one of the children to exceed expectations we do try wherever possible to make the school a fun place to be as we know that a child who enjoys school, wants to be here and wants to try harder! Our very inclusive approach to teaching has ensured that all children regardless of ability make the progress expected of them at the very least.

Teaching is exceptionally good. If you walk into any classroom you will see very well behaved children who are totally engaged in their learning. Teaching will be lively and imaginative in a well-resourced classroom. As well as high quality teaching in the classroom the children have access to some very exciting after school clubs including tennis, dance, football and netball. There are several lunchtime clubs on offer too including performing arts, music and cross country. There is a breakfast club every morning, a homework club two evenings a week and a daily ICT club at lunchtime.  We also have excellent after school care that we can direct you towards.

Our children reach high academic standards in both Key Stages. We encourage competitiveness and this is evident in the classroom as well as in all the sporting activities we are involved in.

There is so much going on in our school that a visit to the website is not quite enough. Come and have a look around for yourself.
