Open Evening 2019

St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School


Come and join us on our journey!


St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School is a place full of committed learners and exceptional people. This is a view shared by all our staff and was recently endorsed by Ofsted. Local parents are also increasingly recognising what is taking place here as we had a record number of applications for places last year and we are now over-subscribed.

 We are keen that as many people as possible in our local community come and see what the inspectors saw last year. You are able to make an appointment and come see the school in action at any time but parents and students are warmly invited to attend our Open Evening (where you can meet staff and students and there will be fun activities for all ages) and Open Mornings (where you can see the school in action).

 We say to our students that they are not defined by an exam grade. In the same vein, the character or mission of a school is never defined by an Ofsted grade. Our ambition therefore remains unchanged; we are building a great Catholic school for the families we serve. We are only just getting started.

What the Diocesan Education Service said about our school;


“The school centres all of its work uncompromisingly on the teachings of Christ.”

“Catholic life is the vibrant driving force of the school and recognised as such by staff, students, governors and parents.”

“Students rapidly become part of the family of St Thomas Aquinas School, and benefit from the unstinting care which they receive.”

“Students greatly value the dedication of staff.”

“Students’ sense of right and wrong is acute and they manifest the values of respect and tolerance.”
