More Determination Pays Off.

More Determination Pays Off.


Celebrations are the order of today at St Thomas More Catholic Academy with students, parents and staff toasting excellent results and personal achievements. The results are a testament to the hard work, effort, resilience and determination to succeed of the students.


Headteacher Mr Rayner explained “These excellent GCSE results reflect the hard work put in by students and staff here at St Thomas More Catholic Academy. Students have seized the many opportunities on offer to tackle these challenging examinations and aspire to be more.  Many of our students can now successfully progress onto their chosen pathways for post-16 courses.


“On behalf of all the staff, I wish our students every success with the next phase of their education.  We look forward to seeing them and other young people from across the city in our sixth form in September.  The student’s perseverance and commitment to their own learning has been impressive and they have achieved results which reflect this.

This year’s results saw a significant rise in the school’s Basics figure to 65% together with improvements in attainment and progress across the board.  These record results come a week after significant success for our A-level students leading them into the best universities and apprenticeships.”


Some particular achievements include; Milan who achieved four grade 9’s and 5 grade 8’s at GCSE and Akhtar scored four grade 9’s and 3 grade 8’s together with a grade seven.  Marcel who won the KMF young engineer of the year in 2018 went on to achieve two grade 8’s, six grade 7’s and one grade six.  Marcel won the prize for his technical ability, teamwork skills with Michelin staff, this helped to inspire him to this academic success he ultimately achieved in the summer


Rob Flello, Chair of Governors, said ‘“I’m delighted to congratulate all the students on their excellent results this year, they’re to be commended for all their hard work and should be very proud of what they’ve achieved. It’s fantastic to see the positive learning experience and support provided by the dedicated staff team at St Thomas More Catholic Academy translating into opportunities for students to realise their highest potential.’
