We believe education is at the heart of a life well lived. It is a philosophy we instil in our students and one which underpins our College maxim of Learn More. Live More. Be More. As a co-educational Catholic College, Thomas More prides itself on its academic curriculum, cultural diversity, proud traditions and tight-knit community. Our students, families and faculty value and promote a lifelong love of learning, the search for truth, a commitment to faith and a desire to help shape a better world. However, the college also acknowledges the role of the individual in their education. And on this personal level, we are committed to helping every student maximise their Thomas More experience and gain much more from their schooling. We look forward to joining your child on their journey.
We recognise the different needs and learning styles of our students
At the heart of our College is the deep understanding that each person is unique, special and created in the image of God. In this belief, we seek to challenge and support our students, individually and collectively, in both their personal and educational growth.
