The Board of Education oversees these schools on behalf of the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham.

 Guided by the Diocesan Vision of Growing Disciples Wider Younger Deeper, and we aim to provide to schools which are;

  • Distinctive:  having a Christian ethos based on living worship and creating a sense of belonging with a curriculum framework offering opportunities for God and faith to be discussed openly.
  • Inclusive: serving local communities by being open to children of all backgrounds, irrespective ethnicity, faith or family situation; nurturing those of the Christian faith and welcoming those of other faiths and none.
  • Effective: seeking justice by working to ensure  an excellent education for all pupils
  • Rooted:  in Christian values and the rich faith background of the Church of England, enabling pupils to flourish as human beings and grow as disciples
