To all connected with the St Teresa of Calcutta Academy

To all connected with the St Teresa of Calcutta Academy,

I am sending you a short message to update you on the planned expansion and growth of our academy during the coming year.

I start by saying thank you and best wishes to our CSEL and former Executive Headteacher, Glen Alexander, who retires at the end of August. I would also like to offer thanks and best wishes to other colleagues who may be retiring or leaving our family of schools.

I am pleased to announce that St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, The Rosary Catholic Primary School and St Chad’s Catholic Primary School plan to join our Academy.

A formal 28 day first consultation will begin on Wednesday 2nd September. More details of this process to emerge in the weeks ahead.

It has certainly been an incredible academic year and period of great reflection for us all. We pray that we emerge stronger as a result of the challenges we have faced.

In September we come back together in the spirit of partnership and collaboration, as we look to provide the very best standard of education to all youngsters we are privileged to serve.

With every best wish,

Colin Crehan

Accounting Officer Designate

Christ Be Our Light performed by St Teresa of Calcutta MAC

This hymn was produced virtually by singing pupils and staff from Archbishop Ilsley, Holy Souls and Holy Trinity.

Combined teams from Chaplaincy, Creative Arts, ICT and Media, created the vision and then produced this final edit that shared the contributions made from people’s homes.
