Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Thomas More Catholic Voluntary Academy.

 We hope this website will give you an insight into our school. We are a school and Church community whose mission statement calls us all to “Love one another as I have loved you.’’ We strive to do this by living out the Gospel Values of respect, honesty and truth in our daily lives. 

I am privileged and proud to be the Head teacher of a school where governors, staff, parents and children work together in partnership to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead of our children.  We share a vision for each child to be cherished and have the best opportunities for an excellent education and, to be a place where we help to make long-lasting magical memories through a creative inspiring curriculum.

Our school has a friendly and caring atmosphere.  We try to build upon our excellent working relationship with parents and continue to develop the partnership between home and school. We endeavour to promote equality of opportunity and are sensitive to the fact that we live in a multicultural society and therefore need to prepare our pupils appropriately.

We are part of the Corpus Christi Catholic Academy Trust which is a group of schools working together to provide a high standard of education in a caring and nurturing, Christian environment.  We therefore work very closely with St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Market Harborough, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Leicester, St John Fisher Catholic Primary School in Wigston, and Sacred Heart Catholic Primary in School in Leicester.

I hope that you will see in our school, a place where every child matters and a community that celebrates each individual’s contribution. I invite you to visit our school and see how our mission is manifested by our community.

Thank you for visiting our website.
