Welcome to Bishop Thomas Grant School
I am delighted to welcome you to the Bishop Thomas Grant School website, which has been designed to ensure it provides the essential information for all our current and future stakeholders and to capture the real essence of our distinctive school.
At Bishop Thomas Grant, we have a long standing tradition of being a fully inclusive Catholic school. We expect all our students to make exceptional academic progress and to be fully supported in their individual journeys of faith. We inculcate in our students the importance of hard work, good manners, smart appearance, courtesy, co-operation and service to others at all times. We ensure a curriculum fit for the 21st Century that is personalised to meet and challenge the needs of individual students.
We are a school with traditional values and high aspirations. At Bishop Thomas Grant School, we expect and encourage each student to fulfil their potential, and we enable them to continue to grow in their faith and mature into fine young people. In this ever-changing world, the school continues to evolve and adapt, ensuring that our students develop the skills required to move on to higher education and employment, and to confidently take their place in society.
As Headteacher, I am committed to developing our links with parishes and to work closely with them, as our school motto states, ‘To unite all things in Christ’. The ethos and high aspirational culture of our school is rooted in Gospel values; to quote the Diocesan Vision for Education, “We stand on holy ground. Every child, every young person, every adult is a unique image of God.”
Parents are the first educators of their child and at Bishop Thomas Grant School we communicate regularly with parents and families. We continue to set challenging targets to make certain that the school builds on its current academic success. This, along with our enrichment programme and extra-curricular activities, serves to ensure that our students receive a broad and balanced education and are able to succeed in life as confident, resilient and well-rounded individuals.
