Our Partnerships

Wythenshawe Catholic Academy Trust

Saint Paul’s joined with three primary schools: St Anthony’s, SS John Fisher & Thomas More and St Elizabeth’s to form the Wythenshawe Catholic Academy Trust.

The school also has excellent partnerships with the three other Catholic partner primary schools in Wythenshawe and the Manchester Catholic Sixth Form Colleges, Loreto and Xaverian, forging curricular and social links to enable students to benefit from continuity at transition.

Manchester Catholic Education Partnership

MANCEP is a collaboration between the Catholic secondary schools and the sixth form colleges in Manchester. Close working relationships between the staff and shared training enables us to not only share the best practice in Manchester for our students, but also to be able to encourage our students to develop their spirituality as part of a larger community across the city.

The MANCEP Mission Statement

Mindful of the Catholic Mission of our schools and colleges, we acknowledge the centrality of Jesus Christ in our work. It is His revelation, communicated through the teachings of the Catholic Church, which provides us with purpose and direction. We are committed fundamentally to promoting curriculum and professional development, thereby enhancing the quality of teaching and learning for all young people in our Catholic schools and colleges in Manchester.

The MANCEP prayer

Come, Holy Spirit, imbue us with your strength, that we may bring the light of faith, the hope of the Gospel, and the promise of your kingdom, into our schools and colleges.

Grant that the work of the MANCEP schools and colleges will bear fruit for the good of the young people in our care, and for the benefit of its members.

Eternal God, bless the schools and colleges in MANCEP, that they may be lively centres for learning, discovery and the pursuit of wisdom; grant that those who teach and those who learn in them, may find you to be the source of all truth; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
