Foundation Phase

Phase Head's Messages
All children are unique and learn differently. We pride ourselves in creating a happy, nurturing environment where children feel safe, thus enabling meaningful learning. The dynamic curriculum facilitates socially collaborative learning using all senses. A creative, critical thinking and problem solving mindset is fostered along with the importance of values and empathy. Importance is also placed on initiative and developing a love for learning in a fun-filled environment.

Senior Primary School

Phase Head's Messages
The Primary School of Thomas More College is a warm, embracing and nurturing environment where each and every child is afforded the opportunity to develop to his/her full potential as he/she progresses from Pre-Primary through the Junior and Senior Primary Phases to the College. Our caring and experienced teachers acknowledge that each child is special and unique and treat each and every child respectfully whilst providing a balanced holistic education.

Our Christian ethos creates a sound value-base and this, plus our superb facilities, excellent resources and environmentally friendly campus, makes our school the ideal place for a child to develop during formative years, acquiring relevant life- and inter-personal skills.

Our enrichment and support programmes, and the acquisition of creative and critical higher order 21st century thinking skills also equip each pupil for the future. We offer that value-add, where children have fun and are happy and free to learn, making school dynamic and enjoyable. As you peruse this website, which offers only a taste of the rich tapestry of our school life, we hope you will entrust us with your precious child as partners in his/her education.

Phase Head's Messages
Welcome to Thomas More College, where each Individual Matter Most.

Our vision is to deliver an Inspired Education, an education which encourages our young people to thrive. We believe that young people thrive most when they explore their passions and strengths with passion and purpose in a dynamic, challenging and safe space.
Whilst our academic results are excellent, and our sports and cultural programmes are comprehensive, varied and competitive, relationships are at the very core of our success. Our young people are mentored, nurtured and loved into being by a highly qualified, engaged and impassioned staff complement. Our educators are thought and practice leaders, committed to exploring innovative ways of educating our young people to be active, thoughtful and empathic citizens in their world.

Thomas More College acknowledges readily that intelligence is unique and varied. We have, therefore, introduced subject choices in Grade 8 and 9 too whereby, every semester, our children tailor a bouquet of modules which pique their interests and passions. Our children are excited to participate actively in their own academic progress, whilst also benefitting from our innovative assessment programme.

In a morally ambiguous and volatile world which is desperate for inspired leadership, our education journey at Thomas More College is values-driven. Servant leadership, empathy, integrity, valuing diversity, protecting one’s own and others’ independence and freedom, and exercising gratitude are inherently good values and dispositions. These, along with the message of love as espoused by Jesus Christ, inform our daily decisions and interactions.

We do not know definitively what the future holds for our children. We do, however, know that they will be lifelong learners, continually learning, unlearning and relearning. This uncertainty will not daunt our children if they are armed with creativity, the capacity to collaborate, varied communication skills, curiosity, critical awareness and composure.
And so, irrespective of the many challenges our world is facing, we are confident that
Thomas More College is a part of the solution as we continue to nurture
Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.
