Tell us a little bit about you as an organisation

We are a Catholic Multi Academy Trust with 34 schools and one nursery from Penzance in Cornwall to Poole in Dorset. We are passionately committed to the core aspiration of Catholic education which is the flourishing of the human person for the common good.

Why did you choose to be a partner with Church of England
and Catholic Education Office?

We wanted to work collaboratively with the Church of England and the Catholic Education Office to ensure local expertise and best practice in our schools is shared and developed, inspiring a community driven by an unwavering vision for excellence.
