 Seek to express the mission of the Church:

·        By moving the hearts of all those whose lives we touch

The association "Sheffield Family of Catholic Schools" was established in 2005 by Pat Nelis, John Hutchinson and Liam McGurrin, and modified to "Sheffield Catholic School's Partnership" on 2017.

Its core purpose is to 'promote curriculum and professional development, thereby enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in all Catholic primary schools in Sheffield. We will work together in true partnership and share expertise, so as to enrich the education of all the children in the Family of schools, in an atmosphere of Christian love, which will benefit Catholic Education in the city'.

There are fifteen schools who are members of the partnership. See our Family of Schools page for details of these.

A variety of activities and services will be offered to schools within, and without, the group.

From our inception, we will seek to provide a wide range of additional services for member schools, to ensure greater efficiency and value for money.
