St Thomas a Becket Catholic Secondary School, Wakefield

St Thomas a Becket Catholic Secondary School was founded in 1964 by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families.

We also welcome children from other backgrounds in accordance with our Admission Policy (below).

The school is run by its Trust Board as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with the Diocesan Trust Deed and Memorandum and Articles of Association, and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ.

If the number of preferences received is less than the admission number then all preferences will be met.

However, when there are more applications than places available, priority will always be given to Catholic applicants in accordance with the oversubscription criteria listed in the policy below.

By applying to this school parents, or carers, are declaring their support for the aims and ethos of the school.

The Trust Board has responsibility for admissions to the school and intends to admit 150 pupils to Year 7 in the school year which begins in September 2021.
