Catholic schools are welcoming places to pupils and members of staff from all faiths and none. More than a quarter of a million pupils and almost half of teachers in Catholic schools are not of the Catholic Faith.

St Patrick’s Catholic College is part of Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust, a family of 32 primary schools, and 5 secondary schools. With 14,000 pupils and 2,000 plus staff, the Trust is now one of the largest Catholic Multi Academy Trust in the UK.
