Welcome to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School
St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School is a one form entry school situated on North Street in the middle of Stoke. The school caters for pupils between the ages of three and eleven.
We are proud of our diverse community with approximately fifty percent of our pupils coming from different countries and cultures. We believe that this prepares our pupils to live alongside others in an ever changing multi cultural society.
We are also proud of our sporting and musical traditions. We are well represented in local sporting competitions and are usually very successful. Our music groups have increased over the years and now we are able to take part in a variety of concerts, performing to a very high standard.
Integral to our school are our Catholic beliefs and values which permeate everything that we do and teach. Consequently, our pupils achieve high standards not only academically but also spiritually and personally in a supportive, nurturing environment.
By following in the footsteps of Jesus we are:
‘making the heart, mind and spirit soar’
