Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust
"Love your neighbour as yourself."
On the 1st October 2021, we formally joined the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust. We are very excited to take our place in the Trust alongside the other Catholic Primary and Secondary schools in our area who have already done so. The Trust was founded on clear principles: to educate the whole child, to ensure every child in its care has an excellent Catholic education and to work together to improve opportunities for all its children to succeed and be happy. We are really looking forward to working with our new family of schools.

Our Trust Prayer
May Christ be at the centre and the root of everything we do.
May all of us know our worth and use it to serve our communities.
May the uniqueness of each person be encouraged so that we discover and reach our full potential.
May our ethos and spirituality be built on Gospel values.
May our schools be a place of safety, discovery, learning, achievement, belonging and love.
May we be instruments and vessels of the living God.
May God be our source, our anchor and our guide.
In Jesus' name, we pray.
The Trust Crest is based upon the original Bishop Bewick Coat of Arms. At the top of our crest is the Bishop’s Mitre - a reminder of our namesake Bishop Bewick, one of the first four Bishops in our region.
Above the shield rests St Cuthbert’s cross, a symbol of our Diocesan Saint. He spent much time among the people, ministering to their spiritual needs, carrying out missionary work, devoted to this region as we are committed to our children and their families.
On the shield there are three bears, each bear representing one of our regions: Newcastle, North Tyneside and Northumberland. Traditionally, bears represent strength, protection, wisdom and courage which reflect the Trust’s key mission, that we are stronger when we work together. We will support all our schools, recognising that we all have times of need. We will harness our collective wisdom for the benefit of all. We will approach our transformative work with courage together.
