Message from the Director
Welcome to the newly updated DES website!
We will be using this as a main source of information for our schools. All of the key functions of the DES are covered by the different sections within the website and I would urge you to take some time to have a look at the information contained on the different pages.
If you are unable to find the information you are looking for please use the contact section to get in touch with the specific member of our team you wish to speak to or email – the individual telephone numbers and email addresses are provided. Similarly the roles and responsibilities of members of our team are outlined in The DES Team section.
Urgent messages will be included on our home page and when required will direct you to other pages for further information. We intend to keep our website regularly updated to keep you informed of changes and developments in Catholic Education across the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
As part of our ongoing commitment to improving and developing the service we offer our schools, the DES will be undertaking a strategic review of how we are able to continue to meet the needs of our schools, within the context of significant changes in education nationally.
We will keep you informed of our proposals for the next academic year later this term.
Director of Education
