Our Trust was established by the Rt Rev Patrick McKinney, Bishop of Nottingham, and came into being on 1 September 2018.

The existence of the CMAT provides new ways for our schools to work together. Children benefit from the expertise of staff from across the schools, and they will have increased opportunities to work with young people from other schools also. Training for our staff will provide even greater quality in our classrooms, and better value for money will mean that more resources can be focussed in those classrooms.

We are truly blessed to belong to a family of schools which, with Christ at the heart of all that we do, shares a common mission to prepare our young people for a wholesome, fulfilling, active life in the future. Our commitment to all parents and carers is to care for, support and educate your child to the highest possible standards.

Our Trust prayer is:

Come, Holy Spirit, Divine Creator, true source of light and fountain of wisdom! 

Pour forth your light upon our schools, and take away any darkness which covers us. Grant our young people open minds to understand, the clarity to comprehend, and abundant grace in expressing themselves. 

Guide the beginning of our work, direct its progress, and bring it to successful completion. This we ask through Jesus Christ, true God and true man, living and reigning with You and the Father, forever and ever.

Our vision

All of our young people tangibly benefit from a consistently outstanding Catholic education.

Our mission

With Christ at the centre of all that we do, we work collaboratively, openly and honestly to provide all young people within our Catholic MAT with a world-class education that enables them to be lifelong learners and fruitful contributors to our society.

Our goals

  • Rich Catholic life: the formation of our young people will be based on the life and teachings of Christ.  Our schools will be accepting and encouraging of people of all faiths and none.
  • World-class education: research-based practice will ensure outstanding provision in the education of the whole person from EYFS to Year 13.
  • Collaboration and trust: staff, governors and directors will work together with parents/carers and parishes in a spirit of openness, honesty and on-going development for the good of the young people in our care.  We will also celebrate the distinctive nature of each of our schools.
  • Equality for all: social justice and a strong desire for upward social mobility will underpin our work to remove all barriers to learning, progress and success.  The safety and wellbeing of our young people will always be paramount.  Every member of our community will be welcomed and valued; no one will be prejudged on their ethnicity, faith (or none), gender, sexuality or age.
  • Life-long learning: our curricula will ensure that our young people are inspired and excited by learning, maintaining a thirst for education.
  • Staff development: evidence-based, highly effective professional development at all levels will ensure both excellent progress and outcomes for our young people, and first-rate career progression for all staff

Our values are at the heart of all we do:

  • Christ-centred
  • We take our lead from the example & teachings of Christ.
  • Ambitious
  • We are driven to ensure the very best outcomes for all.
  • Together
  • We take decisions for the Common Good of all.
  • Restorative
  • We don’t give up on our young people, always believing in them.
  • Joyful
  • We feel blessed to have been called to this vocation and we are a people of hope.
