Welcome to Corpus Christi Catholic Academy Trust. I have been in the privileged position of leading the Trust since September 2018, during which time we have successfully stabilised the Trust finances, centralised the HR, finance and IT services functions, and made good progress on our school improvement journey.

Whilst we are a small multi-academy trust, we pride ourselves on the achievements of all the members of our fellowship of schools, working together to secure the best possible outcomes for the children and young people in our care. In an address to an Italian association of Catholic teachers, educators and school administrators, Pope Francis called on teachers to reach out to and "love with greater intensity" the children on "the peripheries'" of their schools; those who do not like studying, who are labelled as "difficult", who have disabilities, come from other countries or face other problems and disadvantages. To me, we can respond best to the Pope's plea by working as a collective, rather than acting unilaterally; making key decisions together when setting budgets, determining content of the curriculum through discussion, deciding who to employ as a panel, reaching consensus on key priorities etc.

I know that some of you will be reading my welcome to help you decide whether to apply for a job in our Trust, and others of you will be reading the content on our website to consider whether to start the journey of academisation. If you are interested in joining us as either an individual or a school, it is likely to be the right decision if you genuinely believe that by working collaboratively, each school benefits from others' strengths and expertise within the Trust and practically from services provided and procured centrally. Please do join us if you like working with people and want to belong to a dynamic, faith-driven organisation, whose focus is to serve the children, young people and families within their communities.

Opportunities for Career Progression

All vacancies in any of our schools are advertised across the whole Trust, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to experience working in a new environment which can result in promotion, personal development and professional growth.


We are committed to providing Continuing Professional Development and give all staff the opportunity to gain further qualifications. Teaching Staff are encouraged to undertake NPQML/NPQSL qualifications. CPD also extends to our Support Staff and recently a number of Teaching Assistants across the Trust have started either an Early Years Educator Level 3 Apprenticeship or a Teaching Apprenticeship which enables them to gain a PGCE with QTS.

Generous Pension Scheme

Automatic enrolment into the Teachers’ Pension Scheme with 23.68% employer contributions, or to the Local Government Pension Scheme for Support Staff (one of the most competitive on the market, with employer contributions of above 20% in most cases).

Supporting your Well-Being

Supporting your Well-Being – We are committed to supporting the well-being of all our staff and have recently introduced a Health Cash Plan. Staff can access a range of benefits which includes covering the costs towards optical, dental, alternative therapy treatments and health screening. The scheme also gives you access to discounted gym memberships. We also offer the opportunity to receive a flu vaccination each year and free refreshments and fresh fruit are also made available in all staff areas across our Schools.
