Diocesan Vision and Multi Academy Strategy
"The Trustees of the Archdiocese have requested that all schools under the Diocesan Trust Deed work towards becoming an academy. This means that the Archdiocese sees the long term future of its schools as forming and being part of a multi academy company with other Catholic schools in their local area."
Across the diocese there are currently 144 schools within Our Families of Schools
All 234 schools across the Archdiocese of Birmingham being part of 13 Multi Academy Families of Schools.
