Welcome to Thomas Becket Catholic School and Sixth Form, the only Catholic Secondary School in Northamptonshire.
Our safe and thriving school community is built on our 5 core values of faith, justice, compassion, truth, and respect. Our mission is to serve the whole school community to prepare all students for the next steps in life. This is a school where the care of the individual is at its heart and students are provided with the opportunities to flourish and succeed
A school judged "Good" by the Diocese of Northampton, is a school with learning and care of the individual at its heart.
At Thomas Becket Catholic Secondary School we are rightfully proud of our community: children, staff and parents. The school has worked hard to create a calm and ordered learning environment where there is a genuine excitement about learning. Leaders in school have a vision for a community that stands out to others as a beacon for learning with a drive for the inclusion of all.
The curriculum here is ambitious; it offers choice and opportunity at each level. We see our students challenge themselves from Year 7 right through to the aspirational example of our 6th Form. We see a comprehensive training of staff in innovative teaching methodology which is flexible and bespoke to the needs of the individual child.
As a school, we are a reflective and considerate community. Our mandate is to inspire and to care for our students; this is done through setting high expectations especially where behaviour is concerned. Our school has a strong behaviour system so that our students can learn. We scaffold this with interwoven systems of care for the individual; the pastoral support in this school is paramount. When children are cared for they can learn.
Our “Excellence for All Programme” invites students to develop into independent learners with a clear pathway to success. This school is on a journey to excel in expectations, achievements and inclusion so that children have a strong sense of belonging so that they can enjoy the learning experience. I hope that you will find this community willing to work in partnership, in support and in faith. Our Catholic faith and values underpin everything that we do here. As a community, we look forward to meeting you.
Mr P McCahill, Headteacher
