The Catholic Church of St Thomas Aquinas is a Roman Catholic Church on Ham Street, at the western corner of Ham Common, Ham, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The church is a former 19th-century school building, acquired in 1974 and converted for worship and community use
The building was constructed as Ham School in the late 1880s, replacing an earlier village school funded by the National Society and remained open until 1966, when it was replaced by the larger St Richard’s with St Andrew’s Primary School on Ashburnham Road in Ham. The building was used for various community functions throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s before being acquired to allow Roman Catholics to have a church of their own in Ham for the first time since the Reformation.
