Plymouth CAST Information

Plymouth CAST (Catholic and Anglican Schools Trust)

Our School is one of thirty-six schools within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth. The Trustees of the Diocese made a decision to convert all Diocesan Schools into a multi academy trust, meaning that some of our support services will be centralised and that we have left LA control.

Our school became a member of the Plymouth Catholic Anglican Schools Trust in April 2014. This arrangement removed our school from the Local Authority and our voluntary aided status has been replaced by Academy status. The Multi Academy Trust is overseen by a Board made up of Diocesan officials, trustees, and Head Teachers. This is an exciting development for our schools and will help to ensure that the Catholic mission is retained and developed. The fundamental ethos and the organisation of our school remains the same. Because the change offers greater financial stability for all schools within the Academy trust, the work of the school continues uninterrupted.

Financial Accounts, Value for Money Statement and the Master Funding Agreement can be found on the CAST Portal under the ABOUT tab.     
 
Accounts for Year End 31st August 2016 are not finalised until mid-December and will be available at Companies House by end of December and the Portal by 31st January 2017.
