To foster our children’s individual strengths and talents and to encourage spiritual and academic growth to equip them with the skills for life long learning.
Our Mission Statement
Since education takes place only when people are in a real relationship with each other, the aim of St Thomas’ School is to be a community where genuine and interpersonal relationships provide a stimulating educational environment in which each child is encouraged and challenged to achieve his/her highest potential academically and spiritually.
It is recognised that within such a community the religious faith of the individual members of staff and their commitment to gospel values in their daily lives, contribute powerfully to the child’s growth in faith and moral maturity.
Within this community, children feel respected. They are treated with fairness and kindness and are encouraged and expected to show a like respect and concern for their fellow pupils and teachers. Self-discipline and personal responsibility are fostered but always in an atmosphere of trust, friendship and forgiveness.
Since St Thomas’ draws its vitality and the long-term effectiveness of its mission from the life of the local Christian community, close communication with parents is seen as the means of fostering mutual understanding and the involvement of the wider community in the life of the school.
