Thomas Becket Catholic School prides itself on being a Catholic, listening and learning school. The students are at the heart of everything we do and we challenge our staff to: Love the children and let them know that they are loved.
Under the leadership of Ciran Stapleton, our Executive Headteacher, and myself as Head of School we ensure that this challenge is at the forefront of all that we do, whether it is striving for caring relationships with the students, through planning exciting lessons that enthuse the students, providing feedback to help them learn or by striving for the highest possible standards to allow students to fully realise their gifts and talents.
At the school we are keen to listen to feedback from staff and students to build a truly extraordinary school. We believe that by working collaboratively we can help all learners in our community to be happy and successful, as we push them to develop themselves as young people and to achieve the best possible future for themselves and their loved ones.
In the first year under our leadership the school has achieved its best ever exam results with every student achieving on average half a grade more in every qualification than the year before. These results place us as one of the highest performing schools in Northampton. As a result of this, the students have been able to secure the best possible qualifications to unlock successful career options that will lead to their long term happiness.
Together we are moving forward confidently and rapidly, with a sense of pride and purpose in all that we do, as we seek to create an outstanding school.
