The Launch of the Blessed Holy Family Catholic Academy Trust
1st May 2019
The 1st May marks a new chapter in the history of our school. It saw the launch of our new Catholic Academy Trust – The Blessed Holy Family. This brings together some of our local partner schools in securing excellence in Catholic education for today and the future.
St. John Fisher Catholic Primary School, St George’s Catholic Primary School, St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School and ourselves joined together in a special celebration Mass of community led by Bishop John Wilson and concelebrated Father Paul and Father Frank from our local Parish of St Joseph’s.
This special celebration saw pupils, staff, parents, governors, local authority and Diocesan representatives join with the newly formed Trust Board to make a commitment to the future of Catholic education. It was a wonderful testament to collaboration as the pupils from each school led us in fine voice with some of their favourite hymns.
Bishop John Wilson then blessed and presented each of the Headteachers and a pupil representative with a special plaque of the Holy Family to mark the day which will be placed in each school.
After the celebration all gathered to share refreshments where Bishop John was called upon to cut our celebratory cake, ably assisted by some keen pupils who managed to resist the temptation to dive straight in.
