What the school offers its staff

St Thomas More Catholic Academy is an 11-18 mixed Catholic comprehensive, which has an excellent reputation throughout the area. Since 1 November 2013 St Thomas More together with the following primary academies – St Gregory’s, St Maria Goretti, Our Lady’s and St Augustine’s formed the All Saints’ Catholic Collegiate. This provides us with an exciting opportunity to work collaboratively with our four main feeder schools.

At St Thomas More Catholic Academy there are 1141 students on roll including an open Sixth Form of 125 students. The academic ethos of the school is based upon the development of excellence in the individual student.

Our Motto is “Aspire to be More” which encompasses our aspirations for all our students within our school and recognises our patron St Thomas More. 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.
