Welcome to St Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Academy Trust

St Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Academy Trust is the first Catholic Academy Trust to serve schools in the Diocese of Salford. For the Church, our Catholic Schools are about evangelisation and the giving of support to parents in their God-given responsibility of educating their children in the faith
The aim of the Trust is to provide a practical and moral purpose to the formation of all in our community, to support the furthering of education, giving strength and a collective responsibility for the educational welfare of pupils in our schools.
St Teresa of Calcutta Trust has overarching accountability and governance of St Patrick’s RC Primary School and Alice Ingham RC Primary School, both in Rochdale. Together they benefit from the strong ethos and quality governance. St Patrick’s National Support School status, its strong links with the National School of Formation, The National College for Teaching and Learning, Rochdale Catholic School Improvement Federation and Sacred Heart Teaching School in Bolton means that professional development of staff is central to the work of the Trust.
Being members of the trust has formalised the collaboration between schools sharing a vision to provide the best possible outcomes for all our children. This is an exciting time for all the schools involved and we provide a wealth of opportunities for students and staff across the Trust.

Executive Head Teacher, NLE, DLE.
