Curriculum OpportunitiesWe pride ourselves on a wide range of curriculum opportunites for our students
It’s not the curriculum that we offer that sets us apart, it’s the manner in which it’s delivered
Any school can teach a curriculum. Amazing schools like ours are full of teachers actively and passionately exploring the possibilities of making their teaching practice more innovative, engaging and fun at every turn. This is the single ingredient that drives the most growth in our students.
The success we attain is not only evidenced by the assessment data – but it’s seen through the smiles and joy we see on our students’ faces as a concept is grasped. This is the indefinable element that drives us as teachers to produce and grow our own teaching skills year in, year out.
Religious Education underpins all the learning and teaching at St Thomas’. Social justice permeates our learning and teaching and the way we interact with each other.
At St Thomas’ we teach English so that our students may function in the community, develop relationships and broaden their learning in a range of other subject areas.
Mathematics at St Thomas’ seeks to give students opportunities to use Maths in real-world contexts through daily Mathematical activities. This is achieved through activities and games to develop number sense and mental computation skills, and also through engaging in problem solving activities, individually and in co-operative groups.
