Values and Ethos

Learning, loving and living together with Christ

St Thomas More is an open and welcoming school which serves a richly diverse cultural community. Our Catholic faith is at the heart of all we teach, believe and celebrate.

Learning together develops a spirit of curiosity and a passion for life-long self-enrichment through a creative and stimulating curriculum. Every child is challenged and encouraged to find hidden strength, learn new skills and experience achievement as part of team and as an individual.

Loving one another is central to our School family, where all children and adults feel secure and are valued. As a Christian community, we show friendship, forgiveness and respect for others, whilst enabling our children to develop self-esteem and personal responsibility.

Living together as Jesus taught us promotes the personal, spiritual and social development of all children through prayer and activities in such a way that they may live life to the full and become fully alive in God. We encourage each other to be contributing members of the school and parish community understanding and valuing the world in which we live.
