St Joseph's Catholic Academy'Live Like Jesus'

Welcome toSt Joseph's Catholic Academy'Live Like Jesus'

Saint Ralph Sherwin Multi Academy Trust

At the start of this academic year we became part of the St Ralph Sherwin Catholic Multi Academy Trust. We joined together with 19 other primary schools and 5 secondary schools in the Diocese of Nottingham located in Derbyshire, Derby City, Staffordshire and Stockport into a single Catholic Multi Academy Trust to form:

 

‘A Catholic family of schools providing service and witness to children, their families and the communities they serve. Stronger together, united in faith and working as one to enrich the learning experience of all our young people so that they fulfill their God-given potential’.
