St Thomas More Catholic School

This week Sixth Form students in year 12 had the opportunity as part of the "Speakers4Schools" programme to listen to a presentation by Tim Maccabee, Managing Director of the world renowned Ducati motorcycle company. His excellent presentation focussed on the importance of keeping opportunities open as wide as possible for as long as possible and for the students to understand that certain choices do close certain doors.

Yesterday the general election was marked by a debate and vote by year 12 students. The results were in contrast to the overall national picture producing victory for the Labour speaker.

The year 7 boys' football team did very well to reach the Northern Area Cup final without conceding a goal. The final, which was played at Nuneaton Town FC, ended in defeat but the team has acquitted itself well this season.
