Welcome to St Thomas More Catholic School
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 2017 GCSE results and although we are still awaiting information from the government regarding the progress of students, we are extremely pleased with the excellent performances of this year's students. Out of the cohort of 71 students (1 student represents 1.4%) and the headline figures show that 76% achieved 5 or more GCSE passes (grades A* to C and 9 to 4). 73% achieved grades 4 to 9 in both English and Maths with 75% achieving this threshold in Maths and 92% achieving it in English. Every single student left with 5 GCSEs including English and Maths and 28% achieved at least 3 A/A* (9/8/7) grades which, at this time of increased difficulty and changes in the exam system a great accomplishment.
There were some particularly outstanding individual performances with Jamie Everest and Holly King achieving 11 A*/A/9/8/7 grades and Timothy Herschell, Anna O'Boyle, Ben Prince and Annie Wallis all achieving 10 top grades of A*/A/9/8/7. Brilliant! Read More..
