Our School Aims

The school aims to provide an education guided by the beliefs of the Catholic church and seeks to develop the potential of each pupil so that he or she may enter secondary education with confidence. To this end we encourage the development of high standards of self-discipline and the habit of sustained work. The school stresses the importance of learning to be a responsible member of the school, parish and home community. From the beginning we teach courtesy, honesty and consideration for others through example and instruction. Parental support in all aspects of school life is not only welcomed but considered essential for the successful development of pupils.


Thomas More is a National Healthy School. We operate our own catering service. We have a friendly catering team who offer two choices of nutritionally balanced but traditionally cooked lunches, freshly prepared on our premises on a daily basis, offering fresh vegetables (and salad in summer months), with a choice of home cooked deserts, or if preferred a selection of fresh fruit or yogurt of the child's choice. This is based on a 4 week rolling programme.
Example menus can be viewed by clicking the links below
We also cater for children who require special dietary needs, i.e. vegetarians and children with allergies.
