The Newman Catholic Trust is a growing Multi-Academy Trust with an ambition to create an educational and spiritual family where all encounter Christ, where excellence is pursued, and all children and young people are enabled to make the most of their God-given talents and live life to the full.



 The Newman Catholic Trust and our Academy schools are underpinned by our shared values.

As a trust, we care about our children, we care about their future and we care about education:




At Newman, we show  courage in our faith  and when we learn – facing challenges  and overcoming  adversity.


At Newman, we are attentive to the needs of others and respond with action. We are attentive to and actively seek the presence of God in all things.


At Newman. We show respect and concern for each other, our communities, our planet and all people. 


At Newman, we  challenge our students  to go beyond what is expected, seek excellence in all areas  and strive for the  greater glory of God.


At Newman, we believe that it is our duty to work amongst God’s people. This means active service, volunteering and working for social justice.


We strive as a faith community, with strong governance at all levels and in partnerships with our families and communities, to unlock the God-given potential of all who work within our schools and establish Newman Trust as a beacon of excellence within education.
