The Bishop Wheeler Catholic Academy Trust allows us to strengthen the work we all do together in providing a world class Catholic education for all the families within our parishes. Staff and governors continue to work together to provide the best for our young people in all our schools throughout their education. I would like to thank them and all our families for their continued support.
With St. Mary’s Teaching School at the heart of the Trust, we are fully committed to the continuing professional development of all our staff and to providing teachers of the future for our children.
We have a vision for Catholic education that goes beyond individual schools and changes our perception from ‘my’ school, to ‘our’ schools. The challenge for us all is how we can share our gifts and talents to ensure that education for all of our children is outstanding.
