Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust

St Columba’s converted to academy status and joined the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust on 1st October 2021. We are very proud of our place within the Trust which is part of the wider plan for providing an excellent Catholic Education for all pupils across our diocese.

Our Trust Goals:

LOVE – love they neighbour as thyself

COLLABORATION – together we are greater than the sum of our parts

OPPORTUNITY – we want to transform lives through our Bishop Bewick schools

ASPIRATION FOR ALL – we value our children as unique individuals, all with their own purpose in life

DEVELOPMENT FOR ALL – everyone feels valued, cared for and has opportunity for development

Our Trust Prayer:

Almighty God,

May Christ be at the centre and the root of everything we do.

May all of us know our worth and use it to serve our communities.

May the uniqueness of each person be encouraged so that we discover and reach our full potential.

May our ethos and spirituality be built on Gospel values.

May our schools be a place of safety, discovery, learning, achievement, belonging and love.

May we be instruments and vessels of the living God.

May God be our source, our anchor and our guide.

In Jesus’ name, we pray.
