Welcome to the Bosco Catholic Education Trust
At present, we are a group of two schools in the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton who have recently come together to work collaboratively for the benefit of all the children we serve.
The cluster of Catholic schools within the Worthing and Cathedral deaneries have had a long tradition of working collaboratively for the benefit of all the children entrusted to our care. The aim of the Bosco Catholic Education Trust is to provide an education which is ‘second-to-none’ for all children within our two deaneries. 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 schools.
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 will bring significant benefits for example:
- We will work together to train, develop and retain teachers, support staff and leaders;
- We will have the ability to achieve economies of scale by being part of a larger buying group;
- There will be opportunities for staff in all our schools to undertake joint training and share their expertise across schools;
- We will be able to streamline services and provide them centrally and more cost effectively;
- We will have the flexibility to buy in services from our own chosen providers;
- We will be able to share resources across all our schools;
- We will work together closely and support each other to strengthen our Catholic schools
For the last 5 years, I have been Head at St Philip Howard (SPH), an outstanding secondary school in Barnham, and on a day to day basis will continue to fulfil this role. I am really looking forward, however, to my additional role, working with the other schools, as Chief Executive Officer of Bosco CET. I hope you find the information on this website useful. As we get up and running, I’ll be sharing with you our successes and future plans.
