St Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy Trust

St Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy Trust

We are a family of eight Catholic schools in the Roman Catholic Deanery of the Lea Valley.  Our Trust came into being on 1st September 2021, and whilst each school retains its own distinctive ethos and mission, we share one overarching vision: 

To deliver a Catholic education excelling in the academic, pastoral and spiritual life, and which produces fully flourishing pupils who are inspired by the charism of St Francis -


As we are a new Trust, we take particular inspiration from the words of St Francis 'Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible'.  This first year will see us establish the work of the Trust, supporting each school and individual to benefit as a result of being in this new family. 

Please visit our the Trust website at  – I hope that you stay connected with us as we develop the Trust and this website in the months ahead.
