Welcome to the archdiocese of birmingham education service

It is our mission to announce the joy of the Gospel by making Christ known today through securing, protecting and improving the provision of Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
Services for Schools and Academies As part of our mission and aims the Diocesan Education Service remains committed to providing the best possible service to all of our schools and academies in order that they are able to deliver the best possible Catholic education to all of our children and young people across the diocese.
We hope to be able to develop and improve the range and quality of services that we deliver in order to meet the needs of our schools.
We are committed to working in partnership with all of our schools and academies and to this end we have compiled a guide which offers an outline summary of the services we aim to provide to schools and academies during the course of this forthcoming year. It is not meant to be an exhaustive list and is under constant review. It can be found at the "DES Services" link below.
