St Thomas More is a wonderfully friendly, hardworking and successful school in the beautiful spa town of Buxton.

There are just over 400 pupils on roll in this popular and successful 11 to 16 comprehensive school. The school serves all areas of the High Peak. Children also travel from across the borders of Staffordshire and Cheshire to be part of our school community. Approximately 60% of our pupils are Catholic, but whether of the Christian faith, other faiths or no faith, the children are very proud of their school. We are a member of Peak 11.

We have now received our 2016 GCSE results and are extremely pleased with the excellent performances of so many students. Out of the cohort of 76 students (1 student is 1.3%), 70% achieved 5 or more A* to C grades; 66% achieved A*toC grades in both English and Maths; 99% of students left with 5 GCSE passes.  More than a quarter of students achieved at least 3 A/A* grades which, at this time of increased pressure, is a tremendous accomplishment.

There were some particularly outstanding individual performances with both Rebecca and Katherine Marrow achieving 11 A* grades and As in the post GCSE - FSMQ Additional Maths. Josh Brown, Ellie Clewett and Caitlin Kawalek all achieved 10 A*/A grades and Matt Etchells, Tabitha Longden, Olivia Maddocks and Jasmine Rider achieved  8 A*/A grades. Over a  fifth of the cohort achieved 5 or more A*/A grades. Brilliant! Read More...
