Consultation – Our Lady of Lourdes & Holy Family MACs

Dear Colleagues/Parents/Carers

We are delighted to inform you that Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy and Holy Family Catholic Multi-Academy have agreed to join to create a larger company.   This merger is in line with the wider Archdiocese Academy Strategy.   We continue to be supported by the Diocesan Education Service in this and are working closely with them to form the new company within the next six months. 

The formation of a larger Multi Academy Company will build on the strong links already forged across the existing multi-academy companies.  The merger offers an exciting future for all involved, enabling further development of educational excellence firmly rooted within our Catholic ethos, through committed staff, for the benefit of our children, young people, and the wider community. We look forward to this new, shared future with great enthusiasm, and with determination to secure the future of Catholic Education for the benefit of all our pupils.

Our consultation period will run from the week commencing 8th February 2021 and will conclude at noon on Monday 22nd March 2021.  Information regarding the merger can be found on the consultation website www.lourdesit.org.uk/workingtogether, an online form is available for any questions or feedback you have.  Alternatively, you can email Mrs C Horne, by noon on Monday 22nd March 2021 using the following email address: horne.c2@welearn365.com.  

Feedback and written questions will be reviewed by the Board following consultation and a report will be published on the MAC websites.

With every good wish,
