Welcome from our Director

It is a privilege, as the Bishop’s Delegate, and as Director, to invite you to explore these pages. I hope you are able to explore and understand the nature and place that the rich tapestry of Catholic Education has in the Diocese of Salford.

We see Jesus Christ as Teacher and Educator who is at the centre of all our educational endeavour. The ‘call of lead’ in our schools and colleges is answered by a small number, but significant in their contribution to give our young people the quality education which they need in order to become the people whom God created them to be.

The Department’s mantra from the Gospel of St John, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”, is also part of our contribution to the creation and sustenance of our common home. With the support of parents, clergy and parishioners these young people can be accompanied and nourished with the Word of God. With the wisdom of generations of people of faith, “life to the full” sets out our aspiration for excellence in all we do to help shape and influence a loving and caring society where respect for every person is encouraged and where faith and freedom are valued by all.

Director and Episcopal Delegate for Education

Schools Singing Programme

The Diocese of Salford has joined the National Schools Singing Programme, with a seed funding of £75,000 awarded by the Hamish Ogston Foundation to fund a new Choral Director. The programme will be led by Salford Cathedral’s Director of Music Alex Patterson, and will involve the Cathedral Music team and Choral Director travelling around the diocese, working with children and teachers in singing sessions during school hours and after-school choirs. This is a fantastic opportunity to  bring sacred music into your school – it has already produced proven benefits on children’s mental health and academic performance in other UK dioceses where the programme is active.

For more information on how your school can get involved, please see this document: Salford-SSP-Introduction
