In November 2022 we welcomed retired, serving and new headteachers from the Catholic Primary Partnership, to join the celebration of Holy Mass at St Chad’s Cathedral, Birmingham. We were delighted to also welcome a Deputy Director from the Birmingham Diocesan Education Service.

During the Mass, our celebrant, Monsignor Menezes spoke of the importance of remembering those Catholic school leaders who had gone before us.

Newly appointed headteachers were presented with a small gift and a prayer on behalf of the partnership.

After Mass, guests took time to share stories and chat over an afternoon tea in the Grimshaw Room.

The whole afternoon was a fantastic celebration and acknowledgment of Catholic School leadership.
