St Benedict Catholic Academy Trust

The St Benedict Catholic Academy Trust was formed in December 2022 and officially opens in April 2024. We currently consist of two large secondary academies and two primary academies serving nearly 3000 children within the Archdiocese of Southwark.

Our trust was formed with our founding schools following years of high-quality, strong, collaborative partnership work across these schools and many more. Over the coming months we will be warmly welcoming more schools from the South East London area into the Trust.

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 following:

Archdiocese of Southwark

Education Commission

All Leaders in our Trust are committed to providing the highest quality of education for every child and young person we serve, and we aim to ensure that every child and young person benefits from the strengths from within the Trust and beyond.

The young people across our Trust deserve Catholic excellence and a curriculum that allows their fullest expression and formation. We are inspired by our Patron St Benedict to ‘listen with the ear of our heart’ whilst being driven by our mission. We believe that our family of schools are the future of Catholic education and commit to sharing with and learning from others.
