Welcome from the Chair of the Governing Body

If you have already chosen to send your child to our wonderful school then thank you for doing so.  If you are thinking of choosing our school then in my opinion you could not be making a better choice.

I am proud as Chair of Governors to lead such a fantastic, totally inclusive and oversubscribed school.  My fellow Governors and I, led by a great leadership team and staff at the school feel honoured to be involved in this great school.  I also attended the school as did my two daughters.

We like to feel that children who come to this school will leave the school with great memories, be fully rounded and well prepared for the future.

I believe the opportunities which the children receive at this school are second to none.  Our dedicated staff, both teaching and non-teaching provide the children with a creative and enriched curriculum, a great safe learning environment with many diverse after school activities.

Thank you again for considering or choosing our school.

Mr Richard Gray

Chair of Governors.

We are part of the Aquinas Catholic Academy Trust

The Aquinas Catholic Academy Trust is a Multi-Academy Trust comprising of six constituent academies, namely:

All Saints' Catholic Voluntary Academy

St Philip’s Catholic Voluntary Academy
Holy Trinity Catholic Voluntary Academy
St Patricks' CatholicVoluntary Academy
St Joseph's Shirebrook Catholic Voluntary Academy
St Joseph's New Ollerton Catholic Voluntary Academy

Each of these schools before conversion to Academy status was a Voluntary Aided School in the Trusteeship of the Catholic Diocese of Nottingham. The Diocesan Board of Directors gave its consent to convert to Academy status after careful consideration of the issues involved. The Articles of Association allow for the Bishop of Nottingham to appoint Foundation Directors to the Trust, ensuring that the teachings of the Catholic faith are upheld by the constituent academies of the multi-Academy Trust.

Each Academy has its own local Board of Governors (see below), which exercises local control via an agreed and approved Scheme of Delegation from the Executive Committee of the multi-Academy Trust. The composition of the local Board of Governors is determined by each Academy and reflects key stakeholders of the Academy in its membership.
