Academy

On 1st September 2018, Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust was formed. St. Joseph’s is proud to be a member of this family of schools in the north of the Diocese of Middlesbrough. The Trust is comprised of 21 primary and 4 secondary schools.

Mission Statement

Within the Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust we envisage learning taking place in communities inspired by the Spirit of Christ. Where Christ’s commandment to love God and neighbour inspires a caring ethos which is expressed in relationships within and beyond our schools.

All our schools promote the dignity, self-esteem and full development of each person who is made in God’s image and uniquely loved by God. All our schools are inclusive and are respectful of, and engage with people of all beliefs.

Our schools are communities of Faith, Service, Prayer and Worship. Within our schools we have a culture of tolerance where people of diverse identities are recognised, welcomed, respected and cherished. We seek to make a difference to all groups of children, especially ensuring the most vulnerable in our society are not disadvantaged.

Our Schools work in partnership with families and parishes to promote strong, positive links. Every school in the Trust is on a journey of continual improvement, aspiring for excellence year-on-year.

Ethos and Values

Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust has a Catholic identity in all its schools. We are a caring Trust dedicated to academic excellence and the spiritual and moral development of our pupils.

Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust is a faith-based community and plays a positive role in the life of all local parishes. We are a spiritually-centered community, living the Catholic faith as expressed through worship and service.
