Thomas More prides itself on a very active and engaging house system whereby all staff and pupils are assigned to one of the houses. The house names have a very strong religious link.
In Christian tradition, the Four Evangelists are Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, the authors attributed to the creation of the four Gospel accounts in the New Testament. Also Mary, the wife of Joseph, and the mother of Jesus.
At Thomas More, we celebrate the successes of all our pupils who strive to achieve their best in all aspects of their life in school. The House system provides a framework for teachers and pupils to monitor and reward the efforts of our pupil's achievements in all areas. Pupils regularly achieve house points for excellent effort in class, homework, extra-curricular activities, and inter-house competitions.
