Our Diocese



We appreciate belonging to the diocesan community and work closely with them, ensuring we participate in all of the services offered through the Education Service. This includes attending deanery meetings with colleagues from local Catholic schools, keeping up to date with training and inviting the RE Advisor to the school on an annual basis. 

The Diocesan Education Commission is chaired by Bishop John Sherrington and is appointed by the Archbishop as a decision-making body which acts in his name.

It is responsible to him in all areas relating to education in schools and colleges set out in canon law and English law. It is responsible to the Diocesan Trustees for the financial aspects of providing and maintaining Catholic education in the Diocese.

Through its Chairman, the Education Commission liaises with the Archbishop and his Auxiliary Bishops and the Diocesan Trustees. It liaises with schools and colleges mainly through the Director of Education and the staff of the Education Service.
