Who are we?
The Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership was created in 2012, at the request of the Archdiocese of Southwark, to support and further develop Catholic education in Kent. We currently have 26 schools in the partnership, 21 Primary and 5 Secondary, all of which are part of the Archdiocese of Southwark.
The Trust has 5 Members, led by the Archbishop, and a Board of Directors, of which the Foundation Directors are appointed by the Archbishop. We work in close partnership with the Archdiocese and the Education Commission.
An Executive Central Team is employed to manage the day-to-day running of the Trust and our schools are led by our team of Area School Improvement Partners (ASIPs) and Headteachers. Both teams are led and managed by our CEO.
Our partnership's aim is to work together to ensure a world class, ambitious Catholic education for anyone who chooses to attend our schools. We work in close collaboration and consultation with our leaders, including the members of governance committees and staff of our schools, to fulfil our vision and carry out the gospel mission.
Our Trust recognises and celebrates that Jesus came to give us ‘life in all its fullness’, and this is what our partnership of schools aims to provide for our children and our young people during their time with us. The gospel sits at the very heart of all we plan, think and do. Our key message to our children and young people is that we are called by God to love and serve one another as sisters and brothers, and to share Christ’s peace and joy with one another, both locally and as part of a global community.
