OLICAT Schools

We are proud to now be a part of the Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Academies Trust (OLICAT Schools), which brings together eleven Catholic schools across the northern part of the Diocese of Northampton.

Our new trust was formed in February 2020 with the merger of St Thomas of Canterbury Catholic  Academies Trust, St Luke’s Academy Trust and the Bedford Catholic Schools. The new group of schools consists of Primary and Secondary Schools across Northamptonshire and Bedford .

Mr Tony Bishop, our Strategic Executive Lead, is leading a central OLICAT Schools Trust team with regional teams in Bedford, Corby and Northampton.

Day to day life in our schools show little change, for example, school names, places and uniforms remain the same. However, behind the scenes, a larger family of schools opens up exciting opportunities. It allows governors and staff to collaborate and share best practice and ensure that every single child in our care is provided with the best possible education and life skills.
