Welcome from the Head

I am delighted to welcome you to St Thomas More Catholic Voluntary Academy.

We think that STM is a special place where every child is seen as an individual, and where nurturing the gifts and talents of our children is central to our mission.

Our motto of ‘aspire not to have more but to be more’ sums up our ambition for our young people to #BeMore.

We achieve this by offering the highest quality of education possible, which includes a broad range of experiences aimed at developing the whole child and enabling all to grow in their faith in a safe and happy environment.

Our academic achievements and the standards of our pastoral care are excellent. We are very proud of the academic progress our students make and we are also very proud of the personal growth that they achieve during their time at St Thomas More.

If you choose to join the St Thomas More family, you will be joining a school which strives for excellence through our strong Catholic faith, our commitment to high standards of achievement, our high expectations of behaviour and respect for all, and a belief in developing a love of learning and healthy living.
