St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School is a mixed Catholic secondary school in Kings Norton, Birmingham, England that specialises in mathematics and computing.

The school, which is part of the Birmingham Catholic Partnership,[1] consists of key stage three (Yr 7 and 8), key stage four (years 9 to 11) and a sixth form. The sixth form provision is offered as part of the The Oaks Sixth Form, a consortium of 7 secondary schools in South-West Birmingham.[2]

The school has a library, known as the Aquinas Resource Centre or the "ARC".[3] Facilities also include a large playground, a large sports hall, a gym, a music technology suite, a technology suite, and a fitness suite.

The canteen uses a cashless catering system, where pupils and staff use their fingerprints to pay for meals.

The school converted to academy status in April 2015.
