St Thomas à Becket Catholic Secondary School

A Voluntary Academy


Welcome from the Headteacher

Firm foundations provide an unshakeable bedrock in a rapidly changing world. Firm foundations also underpin the way we build our school community too.

Our community is built upon setting;

We insist upon excellence from all members of our community and the search for and development of Faith. By becoming an Academy, and as part of a wider family of Catholic schools, we now have greater resources and freedom to support this and have enjoyed massive financial investment in facilities within the last two years including a new Sports Hall and a unique cycling circuit.

We are very proud of our excellent reputation, which is built on outstanding exam results consistently above local and national averages.

The size of the school as well as the way we structure learning allows us to know each child as an individual, enabling them to realise their God-given potential.

We are a Catholic school committed to providing distinctive and supportive education for children and families from all social and religious backgrounds.

Becket’s is, I believe, unique and distinctive amongst other schools including Catholic schools but, of course, the best way to find out what we’re really like is to visit us.
