St Thomas More Catholic High School is a high performing, oversubscribed, 11-16 school in the South Cheshire Catholic Multi Academy Trust in the Diocese of Shrewsbury which was once again rated Good by Ofsted in March 2020. Our most recent inspection by Shrewsbury Diocese rated us as an Outstanding Catholic school.

We have a well-deserved reputation for academic excellence balanced by outstanding pastoral care and support which allows our pupils to flourish and develop as rounded individuals.

We continue to focus relentlessly on the quality of teaching leading to excellent results for pupils, very high expectations of behaviour to create a calm and happy school, a strong good pastoral system to care for pupils and their needs, and a range of enrichment activities to engage and motivate pupils to contribute to their wider education to ensure that St Thomas More Catholic High School provides an outstanding education for all pupils.

Every school in the country with high ambitions for its young people would probably say the same, but we have a distinctive foundation or inspiration for our pursuit of excellence: our Catholic Christian values, based on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which regards every person as a unique creation of God with an ‘original gift’ to offer the world. Our aim is to help pupils to discover the person they are called to be.

In the day to day life of the school, Gospel values are evident in the culture of respect and the strong ‘family’ atmosphere which all our visitors comment on and our staff and pupils value highly. Our values and common purpose has enabled us to create a thriving community who experience a full and balanced education which prepares them to live a fulfilling life and able to grasp all job, career, high education and leisure opportunities which the world offers.
