St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust at a glance

St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust is a family of 25 academies with a collective vision to excel.

Within the St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust community, we develop young minds, helping every child aspire to achieve their best academically as well as focusing on the growth of character and the development of the whole person.

Our vision goes beyond our individual academies. We believe that the best academies are built around a strong sense of being one community and that is something we all aspire to in our Trust.

Each academy benefits educationally from the expertise within the Trust as a whole and practically from the services procured and provided centrally.

By enhancing the links between secondary and primary schools we provide stable, challenging and consistent education to those pupils and families we serve.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of education for every child and young person in our care. For us it is a wonderful opportunity, indeed a privilege, working with a team of over 1,000 staff and in excess of 200 volunteers to shape the future of Catholic education for almost 8,000 children and young people across the Trust.

Inspired by the life, message and example of Jesus Christ, and in the words of our patron, St Ralph Sherwin, doing this “today rather than tomorrow” is our aim, providing extensive continuing professional development for our staff to grow and develop so that, as role models to the children they teach, we encourage a culture of lifelong learning.

Ultimately, we are dedicated to preserving and developing Catholic education in the areas served by our academies, providing the highest quality of education for every child and young person we serve.
