Ofsted Report

The community of Saint Thomas More Catholic High School are celebrating the publication of their recent Ofsted report after their short inspection on 28th January 2016.  Pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare remains outstanding and the school has maintained a good quality of education since the last inspection.

‘The academy has not stood still but has moved forward rapidly in focusing the attention of staff on improving outcomes.’


‘Teachers have high expectations and, as a result, pupils strive to achieve their challenging targets.’


‘The academy has maintained high standards over a sustained period, with an improving trend compared with national figures in the proportion of pupils gaining five or more good GCSEs including English and Mathematics.’


Mrs Hogg Headteacher: ‘I am delighted with the report from Ofsted. We have a clear idea of where our school is strong and where we can make further improvements. I am particularly pleased that our wonderful pupils were highlighted a clear strength of the school. I would like to thank the whole community of Saint Thomas More Catholic High School for their constant support and challenge.  It is evident that we have the potential to be outstanding in the near future.’
Father Jerome Fagan Chair of Governors: ‘We were interviewed during the Ofsted Inspection on Thursday 21st January. Inspections can be an awesome prospect, but I am glad to say that when we gave our answers we reflected the confidence, research and good work that has been part of our business. Saint Thomas More Catholic High School is still a Good School. We look forward to moving it towards becoming an Outstanding School in the near future.'
