About Thomas A Becket Middle School

As a very large middle school the resources and diversity that this brings benefits every child. We know that each child in our school is special and unique. Each has special talents and needs to be taken into account. We provide an extensive range of activities so that each child can thrive, succeed, and enjoy the challenges provided at our school.

As a school we aim to help each child develop as a successful learner, confident individual and responsible citizen.

We do our best to help all pupils develop their capabilities to the full, whilst learning to respect others, express themselves with fluency and confidence, and understand the world in which they live.

We expect the highest standards of behaviour and appearance at all times, both on site and to and from school.

Following our "Outstanding" Ofsted inspection judgement of 2011, and "Outstanding" Ofsted English Survey visit of 2013, we were hugely disappointed to be judged as "Requiring Improvement" in January 2014. However, we are working hard to ensure the groups of pupils with additional educational needs who were identified at the time of the inspection as not making sufficiently good progress are doing as well as everyone else, and the recent HMI visit in May 2014 validated this.

We seek to achieve our aims within the context of a caring and secure school family - everyone is known at Thomas A Becket Middle. The continuing success of our rich, all-round offer and outstanding reputation are based on the strong, co-operative partnership between children, staff, parents, governors and members of the local community. We aim to develop mutual trust and confidence between all parties which is essential in forming a successful partnership in a child's education.
