Mr Joseph Hughes

Two years ago, I said that we were at the beginning of an exciting journey, which I believed would significantly strengthen Catholic education in the north of the diocese. It is fair to say that we have made an impressive start and our success can be seen across a range of fronts.

The quality of education on offer in our schools is on a demonstrably upward trajectory and Ofsted reports over the last two years confirm this. We have committed staff led by effective leaders and supported by teams of dedicated governors. Our schools now benefit from a strong professional team at the centre. Above all there is a very tangible sense of the Nicholas Postgate family coming together and providing mutual support for all members of the family.

Nowhere has this been better witnessed than in the way in which we have risen to the challenge of the Coronavirus pandemic. I wish to thank all of our schools and the central team for responding so positively in the face of such an unforeseen crisis. While still having to contend with Coronavirus we must continue to plan ahead to build on the excellent start that we as a Trust have made.

We are absolutely determined to set our sights high and aim for further improvements on behalf of the children and young people we are proud to serve. I am confident that together we will achieve the ambitious targets we have set for ourselves.

Please take time to look at our website where you will find a full and detailed account of the Trust.
