Nicholas Postgate Academy Trust

Nicholas Postgate FINAL

On 1st September 2015, Sacred Heart School became and Academy and joined the Nicholas Postgate Multi-Academy Trust. Working with our partner primaries; St Bede's, St Benedict's, St Joseph's and St Paulinus, the Trust is committed to working together to share talents, skills and resources and create opportunities for the benefit of all. 

Sacred Heart Secondary Catholic Voluntary Academy is taking a full part in the Trust and has governor representation on the Trust Board.  We are pleased to be a part of this closer working relationship with our primary colleagues and share with our Diocesan family of schools in promoting and preserving Catholic education.

Mission Statement

The Nicholas Postgate Academy Trust will work to share talents, skills and resources and create opportunities for the benefit of all, following the teachings of Christ. We will provide governance to our academies in a spirit of openness, challenge, support and partnership. We recognise and encourage our families’ role as first educators of our young people. As a responsible employer we will recruit and develop our staff to the highest professional standards to enable them to deliver an outstanding education.

Our vision is one of respect:

  • Religious journey
