The Painsley Catholic Academy Group of Schools
Painsley MAC Mission Statement
Through our Catholic faith
we grow in the love of God and each other;
we show respect in our words and action;
we serve our communities and the world;
we learn to be the best we can be;
becoming better together as children of God.
The name “Painsley” was chosen because it had a common link with all the parishes which cover our school community. From Painsley Hall, Draycott, one of the Draycott family houses, came a “Painsley and Draycott Mission”, which served the neighbouring areas and from which grew those parishes which are now connected with this academy.
We share a clear vision of how our schools can operate effectively, ensuring that each and every one of our students achieve their full potential in a caring and disciplined environment. We are committed to providing each of our students with the best education possible.
We believe that all of our students have the right to a safe and enjoyable education in a positive, disciplined and caring environment. This presents every child with a challenge to be the best person they can be, to reach their full academic potential and to realise their dreams. Working together and supporting each other as a close family of schools we believe that we are, and will continue to be,
As a Catholic Academy Gospel Values are at the centre of our family of schools. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of education in order to develop and fulfil the potential of all students in our care, from age 3 to 18.
The faith development of our students is of paramount importance and whilst we strive to live in a faith community, we also ensure opportunity for the development of religious belief and religious literacy to ensure the foundations of faith in all our students.
The Painsley Catholic Academy was established in 2012 and in September 2018 welcomed a union with Holy Trinity Catholic Multi Academy, making it the largest Catholic multi-academy company in the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
Our family comprises two high schools and thirteen primary schools. We share a clear vision of how our schools can operate effectively, ensuring that each and every one of our students achieve their full potential in a caring and disciplined environment. We are committed to providing each of our students with the best education possible.
As Chief Executive Officer (CEO), I am blessed to have outstanding staff, outstanding directors, outstanding support from parents and parishes and, crucially, outstanding and respectful students. I take the trust that you, as parents, put in me as CEO to care, guide and educate your child very seriously.
I assure you that I will work tirelessly to ensure that your child’s ambitions and God-given talents are realised.
