I am proud to welcome you to our school. This website will give you a flavour of what makes Blessed Thomas Holford Catholic College a successful school and a special place of learning.
We are an outstanding school with exceptional levels of achievement. We expect a great deal of hard work from our pupils and know everything derives from this one important quality. We demand high standards from everyone in our community and want our pupils to grow into hard working, confident and ambitious young people who want to make a difference in the world.
Our academic standards are outstanding. This year 93% of our pupils achieved 5+ A*- C grades and 80% achieved this benchmark including English and Mathematics, these results are well above national averages. Our aim in the next two years is that every pupil achieves this important standard.
The care and guidance we give our pupils is excellent. From the moment a pupil enters our school we want them to feel a sense of happiness and belonging as this is very important to their future success and well-being as learners and as people.
Our popularity with parents has never been higher, the steep rise in numbers over the last few years is testament to their belief in what we are doing at Blessed Thomas Holford and the exciting future we have in front of us.
I feel privileged to lead a wonderful dynamic school that offers our pupils enormous opportunities and I look forward to working with our parents to ensure the best for every child.
