On November 1st 2021, we became part of the Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust (BWCET)
Bishop Wilkinson Catholic Education Trust supports and partners five secondary schools, one middle school, one first school and forty-one primary schools in the west of our Diocese: this includes St. Joseph’s Catholic Infant and Junior Schools, Birtley.
BWCET’s designated schools are located in four different Local Authorities: Northumberland, Gateshead, Sunderland and Durham. Within our Trust we have a Centre For Teaching, a National Computing Hub, a National MFL Hub, a Science Learning Partnership and a national accredited NPQ (National Professional Qualification for Headship and Leadership) provider.
The Trust is overseen by a governance structure which can be viewed here:
We are supported by an excellent Executive Team who have the knowledge and expertise to help us navigate the latest education policy and research.
