At present, we are a group of three schools in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton who have recently come together to work collaboratively for the benefit of all children in the Catholic schools of Sussex. Our single purpose as a Catholic Education Trust is to serve schools in anything they need to provide a truly outstanding education for their children. This may be with practical day to day support, bringing teachers together for professional development, providing resources, adding capacity and bringing expertise in areas that may otherwise distract school leaders from their core purpose.
Catholic schools in Arundel and Brighton have a long tradition of working collaboratively. Bosco Catholic Education Trust was established in April 2016 to bring together more formally any Catholic schools within Sussex (East Sussex, Brighton and Hove, West Sussex) that wished to do so. The aim of the Bosco Catholic Education Trust is to provide an education which is ‘second-to-none’ for all children within Sussex specifically and more widely, the Diocese. We seek to further enhance and strengthen the partnerships between our Catholic family of schools and to preserve and protect all that we value and cherish in our communities.
Catholic schools aim to provide a holistic education, recognising that every child is made in the image and likeness of Christ. We will work tirelessly to enable our children to fulfil their God-given potential, supporting their spiritual, moral, social, cultural and physical development as well as setting uncompromising standards for their academic excellence.
Being part of the family of schools and the Bosco CET brings significant benefits for example:
For the last 6 years, I have been Head at St Philip Howard (SPH), an outstanding secondary school in Barnham, and on a day to day basis continue to fulfil this role. I enjoy however working with many talented colleagues in other Catholic schools across Sussex. Bosco CET is accountable to the schools and their Governing Bodies in the Trust. We are here to serve them and, in these times of increasing pressure on schools, to lighten the load.
I hope you find the information on this website useful. Do please get in touch if you have any questions or wish to pay us a visit!
