St Thomas More College aims to be a community which is under-pinned by Gospel values and high academic expectations. These attributes forged the character of our patron, St Thomas More. It is presumed that residents at St Thomas More College are prepared to embrace these values.
St Thomas More College will always welcome non-Catholic Christians, and non-Christians. The College respects the faith traditions and beliefs of all of its residents, and in turn expects a reciprocal respect from all of its residents regardless of their faith background.
Each member of the College community is important. As such, each resident is responsible for contributing towards College spirit and life. Assisting residents in this endeavour are, the staff, the Chaplain, the College Council, the Resident Advisors, and the Student Club Committee. Whenever a resident is in need of assistance, it is never far away!
The Christian ethos of the College presupposes that each student strives to live by sound spiritual and human values. St Thomas More College aims to challenge students to become men and women whose professional training prepares them for the service of others. To this end, all residents are invited to undertake some voluntary community service (outreach) during the course of each academic year. The students who choose to get involved in our outreach program find that they gain far more than they ever give in the process. Modern employers are also very keen to see that students have done that little something for others along the way and given back to their communities.
The College aims to promote a climate of academic excellence in which each student is able to extend and develop his/her talents and abilities to their full potential. Often, students who have done well in their courses will become paid academic tutors within the College, assisting others and developing their leadership capacity in the process.
