At Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College we place great importance on the education of the whole person, not just the academic side. Young people need to be given opportunities to develop their personal, social, moral, cultural and spiritual knowledge and skills. These are delivered through the curriculum and through the enrichment activities that the school organises. Therefore, we have drawn up a wide range of enrichment opportunities for pupils.
