About Us

Saint Thomas Primary School is the sole Catholic primary school serving the large parish of Our Lady and Saint Thomas of Hereford.  We are proud to continue a tradition of Catholic education that has formally existed from the 1860’s.  The current school premises date from 1974 when the school moved from the old building which was situated next to the Church.  Over the years, the original open-plan school has been extended and altered many times.  Through 2015/16, the school underwent an extensive re-model that has removed all of the out-dated open-plan nature of the school and created a fabulous purpose built Reception Classroom, 2 further rooms, a re-modelled entrance lobby as well as several smaller rooms that can be used for intervention work, musical instrument tuition and meetings.


We aim to create a caring Christian atmosphere based on Gospel values and a love of Christ which teaches children respect for themselves and for others.  We feel this atmosphere makes everyone aware that they should contribute towards the Christian ethos of our school.


Our school encourages everyone to grow in faith through prayer and worship and seeks to recognise that each individual is valued as being unique.  We will provide a curriculum which will develop the full potential of every child. We strongly encourage the partnership between the school, home and parish in order to foster relationships with the wider community


Our school is proud to be part of St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust. Formed as a partnership of the Catholic Academies in the Diocese of Nottingham, we are a family of schools united by a collective vision to excel.  We position ourselves at the forefront of the community, working together to provide children with the knowledge, inspiration and guidance needed to fulfil their God-given potential.
We give our staff the support and space needed to focus on teaching, creating the best learning experience possible for our children.
