Brentwood Diocesan Education Service supports our Catholic Schools. Our vision for education can be found at

Each of us has a part to play in supporting Catholic Education. The contribution it makes to the Common Good of society as a whole is an important part of evangelising our diocese. It is one way of communicating Christ to others and each of us can help.

Catholic Schools also help children and young people to hear the Gospel message and provide them with an opportunity to respond to Christ’s invitation to “follow me”.

Every catholic school needs Governors, every multi academy trust needs Trustees, many schools benefit greatly from volunteers who provide assistance to the teachers and support staff. There are many ways you can get involved in helping our Catholic Schools and you can ask for specific information via [email protected]



Catholic education is above all a question of communicating Christ, of helping to form Christ in the lives of others
