BCS to Join OLICAT Schools

Our Lady Immaculate Catholic Academies Trust (OLICAT Schools) brings together eleven Catholic schools across the northern part of the Diocese of Northampton.

In January 2020, the Bedford Catholic Schools joined up with a group of Northants Catholic Schools (St Thomas of Canterbury Academy Trust and St Luke’s Academy Trust).  The new group consists of 9 Primary Schools and 2 Secondary Schools.

Mr Bishop, our Executive Leader, is leading a central OLICAT Schools Trust team with regional teams in Bedford, Corby and Northampton.

Day to day life in our schools will show very little change, for example, school names, places and uniforms will remain the same. However, behind the scenes, a larger family of schools opens up exciting opportunities. It will allow governors and staff to collaborate and share best practice and ensure that every single child in our care is provided with the best possible education and life skills.
