Northern Saints Catholic Education Trust came into existence on 1 February 2016 with the aim of ensuring excellence for everyone. Although currently comprising only the one school, we expect to expand the Trust shortly, building on existing partnerships and developing new ones, in order to truly realise the benefits of successful collaboration between schools for the benefit of our students.
At their meeting on 14 February 2019, the Regional Schools Commissioner and Headteacher Board gave agreement in principle to our plans to expand Northern Saints Catholic Education Trust to include St Joseph’s Catholic Education Trust, Hebburn, St Mary’s RC Primary School, Jarrow and Our Lady of the Rosary RC VA Primary School, Peterlee. We are currently working towards transfer dates of 1st April 2019 and 1st May 2019.
As a family of schools inspired by Christ, we aim to enable each individual to fulfil their God given potential. Excellence for everyone through learning, respect and partnership is the heart of our Trust
The ultimate responsibility for the running of our schools resides with the Directors of Northern Saints Multi Academy Trust. They set the strategic direction for the Trust and ensure that it is run in accordance with our Vision and Values.
