Inspired to be our best.....
As part of The Diocesan Academy Strategy, the Trustees of the Archdiocese have requested that all schools under the Diocesan Trust Deed work towards becoming an Academy. This means the Archdiocese sees the long-term future of its schools as forming and being part of a Multi-Academy Company with other Catholic schools. The Pope Francis Multi Academy Company (PFMAC) has been designated as the MAC for all Oxfordshire schools.
St Joseph’s is now part of the Pope Francis Multi Academy Company (PFMAC), a centre of excellence for Catholic education in Oxfordshire. The DBMAC and PFMAC merged from 01 January 2021.
The DBMAC was initially set up to lead seven Catholic Academies. The five other schools joining the enlarged PFMAC are St Gregory the Great Secondary, Oxford, St Thomas More, Kidlington, St John Fisher, Littlemore, Our Lady's, Cowley, and Our Lady of Lourdes, Witney.
The Pope Francis Catholic Multi Academy Company is the family of Catholic schools in Oxfordshire, who work together to promote the teaching of Christ and the Catholic faith.
We believe each person is a unique creation made in the image of and likeness of God, called by name, with a special vocation and gifts to bring to the world. We seek to develop these talents in each individual by being a beacon for Catholic education in Oxfordshire.
Our vision is:-
We are a Catholic Multi Academy Company within the Archdiocese of Birmingham; our founders are the Barberi and Newman Academy Trust. We have a close working relationship with the Diocesan Education Service, the Local Authority, the Department for Education, the Education and Skills Funding Agency and other local schools and academies.
We are committed to striving for excellence in delivering Catholic education for our students. We pray that the Pope Francis Multi Academy Company will lead and inspire all who attend, work and teach in our academies to achieve their potential by following in the path of Christ.
