“It is vitally important that the Catholic education system in the Diocese of Hallam is secured, protected and developed further for the benefit of future generations of children and young people, that our schools continue to flourish and that every child who attends one of our schools receives the best possible Catholic education.”

Extract from Bishop Ralph’s letter to schools – January 2021

To support Bishop Ralph’s vision of strengthening Catholic education in our Diocese, two new Catholic Multi Academy Trusts (named after St Clare and St Francis) have been established to help our primary and secondary schools work more closely together for the common good. Drawing in talent and expertise from our Parishes is key to success – can you help serve the children of Hallam?

St. Clare and St Francis Catholic Multi Academy Trusts are responsible for the education of approximately 17,000 pupils across the Diocese of Hallam. Both Trusts are looking to recruit new Directors and are keen to increase diversity and range of experience on their Boards. Do you have the skills to help shape the education of thousands of young people?

St. Clare’s Multi Academy Trust is responsible for 24 schools and over 8,000 pupils, with primary and secondary schools across Barnsley, Rotherham and Sheffield. St. Francis Multi Academy Trust is responsible for 23 schools and approximately 8,000 pupils, with primary and secondary schools across Derbyshire, Doncaster and Rotherham.

Both Boards of Directors are looking for new members from a wide and diverse background to join us in providing the strategic oversight of the Trust. Our schools serve children from across all the Parishes and communities of Hallam. We recognise the need for the members of the board to reflect the communities we serve and we would welcome applications from all backgrounds to help us achieve this.

The role of Director is open to all and no previous experience or background in education is required; we are hoping to attract new members with a broad range of skills that will complement those we already have.

To find out more about what the role entails and how you can make a meaningful contribution to the Catholic education of thousands of children please email
