About Our School
St. Thomas Becket is a 2 form entry Catholic Academy, catering for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. The school was established in 1967 to provide a Catholic education for children and families.
We believe that it is only through a genuine partnership between home, school and parish that we can help our children to realise their true potential. We are very privileged to have a highly dedicated team of staff and governors who are wholeheartedly committed to ensuring our children have the best education available. In support of this the school invests in a quality and targeted CPD programme to ensure staff and governors have the necessary skills to support the vast range of children’s needs that exist in our school.
We are fortunate to be part of a school rich in diversity, talents and gifts.
Our aim is to ensure that our children develop to the very limit of their potential in a community that has the Gospel values, traditions and beliefs of the Catholic Faith at the centre of its ethos. We have a holistic approach to teaching and learning and aim to foster all aspects of children’s development spiritually, creatively, physically, socially and academically.
We have a comprehensive sports programme both in and outside of school hours and utilise the musical expertise of the Croydon Music Service to ensure music tuition is a key facet of the school.
Recently we have taken on the Learning Challenge curriculum which is a theme based approach to delivering the national curriculum, designed to tap into children’s interests and make learning fun.
