The parents of our students are an integral and valued part of our community here at Tommy, and we don’t take lightly the trust you have placed in us to help guide your son or daughter through their first years outside the family nest.
St Thomas More College prides itself on providing a convenient, welcoming and supportive home away from home for the students in our care.
Living out of home for the first time can be a daunting experience (for students and parents alike!), especially when moving far from family, traditional support networks, and embarking on life as a university student.
Our College offers students a supportive environment that helps them acclimatise to independent life in steady steps, rather than have to worry about utility connections, meals, transport, cleaning and more, all at once. We aim to provide a home-like environment with our Head of College and Deputy Head of College residing on site and offering a constant source of responsible guidance and pastoral care.
Students are encouraged to take up personal and professional development opportunities through the College’s training and social initiatives, and are welcomed into a respectful community where they often make lifelong friends.
We understand that, although your son or daughter will technically be an adult, that you may like to have some involvement in their care, and that you too, may have an interest in the facilities, events and offerings here at St Thomas More College…. (and you have a right to do so, especially if you are footing the bill!)
