Thomas Becket Catholic School

Thomas Becket Catholic School

Welcome to our Year 7 area, which we hope will give you all the information you need to find out about starting school with us in September. 

Find out more about the Pastoral, Inclusion and Chaplaincy support that Thomas Becket can provide your child, as well as further information about our wide and varied Curriculum and Enrichment activities we have on offer, including our Electives Programme. 

If you are currently in year 6 it can seem a big step to move up to year 7 and on to the next stage of your journey with us at Thomas Becket but rest assured it is a top priority for us that you settle into life here quickly and happily. We work closely with our local Primary schools to ensure a smooth transition and to support you throughout.  

Our school/ home partnership is incredibly important and the past few months have highlighted the strength of our community relationships.

We invite you to Meet our Parents and take a listen to their positive experiences over the past 6 months and of the support given to students and their families during these challenging times. Please do also share in our celebrations for the Year 11 and Year 13s  - we are so proud of their achievements and the doors that have now been opened up to them for the next stage of their educational journey. 

All learners in Year 7 and across the school are given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. Find out more here about our new Make Music for All programme which offers significantly subsidised peripatetic lessons, along with many opportunities to perform in choirs, brass band and wind band across the year.

If you would like to see our school in action, please do get in touch with our school office to arrange a school tour.
