Welcome to the MAC

The MAC was formed on 1st May 2019, with two secondary schools and one primary (Archbishop Ilsley, Holy Trinity and Holy Souls).  Three further primary schools joined in September 2021 (St Chads, St Joseph and The Rosary).

The distinctively Catholic ethos and vision of our MAC,  are inspired by the example of St Teresa of Calcutta and the virtues shown in her life and work. We expect all who learn and work in our schools to : 

  • Have the courage to challenge themselves and transform their world.
  • Show compassion for others, respect diversity, and respond to need.
  • Seek a fulfilling vocation by learning effectively so as to enrich their own lives and become active citizens, equipped for roles of leadership and service, for the common good.

Our schools are all situated within four miles of the cultural and commercial centre of Birmingham. Active engagement with families and parish and local communities is key to their individual strengths.

Our principal mission and purpose, is to provide the best possible Catholic education for every child, using all our collective talent and resources to secure this. Believing that everyone can succeed and improve on their personal best, we are committed to honest self-evaluation and continuous improvement, in mutually supportive learning communities.

The Saint Teresa of Calcutta MAC exists to serve and encourage young people to discover their God-given gifts and talents. With the example of Christ as our centre, we focus on what unites us as children of God, and the messages of love, service, mercy and compassion, found in the Gospel, to create a caring and loving environment in which the children of our communities can become spiritual, inspired, successful citizens of the world.
