Welcome to our website.
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 May 2017 which rated the school as a Good school.
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 comes 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”.
We fervently believe that a major strength of our school is the positive relationships that exist within it and within our local and Catholic community. We work very closely with all our partner primary schools to ensure the smooth transition to high school for all our students. Furthermore, we consider it important to get to know the families of our pupils, so that we can work together for the benefit of every child placed in our care. The school values the excellent support it receives from parents and carers.
We are an 11-18 academy of over 1000 students which is part of the All Saints Catholic Collegiate. Alongside four Catholic primary academies; we work innovatively and at the cutting edge to ensure outstanding transition and progress from Foundation Stage to Sixth Form. We also collaborate with two other Catholic Secondary schools to provide a Catholic Sixth form provision in Stoke and North Staffordshire.
We have a team of conscientious and professional staff who consistently encourage their students to be the best they can be. We aim for the highest standard in all that we do and we can only achieve success with the co-operation of our students and parents. Working together in partnership we believe that anything and everything is possible.
This is a very exciting time in our history; strong examination success at both GCSE and A level, a full program of extra-curricular and enrichment activities, excellent facilities including sports facilities and an aspiration to improve further. We look forward to you welcoming you into our community and “Aspire to be More”
