About our school

At Thomas More College we have developed a proud tradition and strong reputation, educating our students to become confident, intelligent and compassionate young people, capable of making a valuable contribution to their world.

We strive to provide a quality education that draws faith, culture and life into harmony. We give students access to exceptional learning opportunities within a caring, compassionate and highly supportive Christian environment, helping them develop their knowledge and skills, along with a strong sense of compassion and justice, encouraging them to make a positive difference to the world.

A distinctive feature of the College is the sense of ‘belonging’ that is strengthened by high expectations and the never-ending support that exists within Thomas More. As an entity with such a variety of people and talents, TMC is truly an inclusive and welcoming community that has a “place for everybody”. Our Inclusive Education Team supports the academic and social development of students with a disability, ensuring that all students at TMC are given opportunities to achieve their full potential.  Our students are at the heart of everything we do at Thomas More College and to be part of the TMC family is truly a gift for life.

Principal's Message

At Thomas More College, our appeal as a school rests in our strong sense of community, the values we celebrate, our commitment to realising the potential of young men and women, and in providing a balanced education that addresses the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of our students’ lives.

We welcome you to visit us at Thomas More College on one of our many Principal Tour’s throughout the year so you can see for yourself why TMC has become known as a place of quality education in Adelaide’s north.
