Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing on behalf of Bishop Patrick McKinney to inform you that as of 1 September 2022, the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust will be welcoming English Martyrs’ Catholic Voluntary Academy, Oakham as a new member of its community. Over recent weeks, our formal request to transfer schools from the St Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Multi-Academy Trust to our other diocesan Catholic Multi-Academy Trusts has been approved by the Department for Education.
I know that the links between Leicestershire and Rutland are strong and that the community at English Martyrs’ already has positive relationships with other schools in the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust.
I would like to extend my grateful thanks to the Board of the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic MultiAcademy Trust for responding so generously to Bishop Patrick’s request.
For you, as parents / carers of children at schools within the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic MultiAcademy Trust, things will continue as usual.
Thank you all for the support that you offer to our schools.
Director of Education
