What the school offers its staff

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.

The entire school community is very proud of the OFSTED inspection outcome in October 2022 which rated the school as a Good school. This comes after the previous two inspections rated the school as Requires Improvement.

The school was rated as Good in every category including Sixth Form. Inspectors recognised the transformation of the school, the changing culture and the positive impact on the life chances of the students.

This came just a few months after the Diocesan inspection in November 2016 which judged the school as a good with outstanding features. The Section 48 stated that “Leadership of Catholic life and collective worship is outstanding”.
