Living Our Mission

As our Mission Statement says, "We open our hearts to others" and our school values are always at the heart of everything that we do.

As part of our Mission Statement, Catholic Social Teaching which feeds into our Catholic life of the school, we work hard to support charities and world wide causes.

Our school community at St. Thomas of Canterbury pledge to support the work of many charities throughout the year, including CAFOD, Royal British Legion, Nugent Care, Willowbrook, St Helens foodbank and Good Shepherd.

We want to support these charities to help make a real difference to the lives of others who need our love and care. 


We always take part in CAFOD's Family Fast Days and help raise money for our global neighbours through many inventive fundraising events throughout the year.

Willowbrook Hospice 

We take part in events such as 'Walk for Willowbrook' to help raise money for this important charity in our local neighbourhood.

Harvest Festival

Parents and families kindly donate much needed food every Harvest which is sent to the St Helens food bank to help the poor in our community.

Poppy Appeal

Every November, we sell poppies and other items on behalf of The Royal British Legion. 

Good Shepherd

During Lent, we have a variety of events to help raise money for the Good Shepherd Fund

Live Simply Award

We are excited to be working towards our Live Simply Award.  By pledgimg to  'live simply' we are committed to doing all that we can to create a better world for all and we are working through the targets on our action plan.
