The Trust currently leads and manages ten Catholic primary schools located across the geographical area of Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire and, two Catholic secondary schools – Thomas Becket in Northampton and St Thomas More in Bedford.

Thomas Becket Catholic School is a successful, comprehensive 11-18 secondary school in Northampton. We are committed to continuous improvement and driving up standards of attainment and we are ambitious for our students and our staff. We are a Catholic, learning and listening school where it is not enough that children know they are loved, we show them.

With dedicated and caring staff who put the pupils and their learning, growth and personal development first?

Where the teacher is valued as the expert?

That has a very clear and systematic approach to improving students’ attitude to learning?

That takes workload seriously and provides additional PPA (up to 16%) to support staff to forge relationships with parents to improve behaviour and attitudes to learning?

That values staff input, feedback and collaboration as the school moves on our mission to excellence.

That provides staff CPD to develop their practice and skills both internally but also recognised national qualifications?

That prioritises a ‘Knowledge Rich’ curricular approach, valuing the importance of a curriculum accessible to all?

To ensure every student gains enjoyment from their study of RE and will become fluent in the skills necessary for life
