Welcome to the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust
A number of Catholic schools from Nottingham City and the County of Nottingham joined together to form the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Trust officially in September 2018. These schools range from St Joseph’s, Shirebrook in the North to us, Blessed Robert Widmerpool, Clifton, in the South and from Holy Trinity Newark, in the East and The Trinity School, Aspley in the West. This is an exciting partnership of 4 secondary and 17 primary schools and aims to share what we all do well so that we can achieve our vision of ‘Outstanding Catholic Education for All’. We are part of the Catholic Church’s wider mission of helping to make Christ known to all, supporting parents as primary educators of their children and of being of service to the diocese, local parish and wider society. Together our Heads and members of the Trust Executive Team have written a Trust Mission Statement and Trust Prayer .
Please find our Trust newsletters at the bottom of this page detailing all the wonderful things happening in our schools.
OLoL Mission Statement:
We are a partnership of Catholic schools and our aim is to provide the very best Catholic education for all in our community and so improve life chances through spiritual, academic and social development. We will achieve this by:
Placing the life and teachings of Jesus Christ at the centre of all that we do
Following the example of Our Lady of Lourdes by nurturing everyone so that we can all make the most of our God given talents
Working together so that we can all achieve our full potential, deepen our faith and know that God loves us
Being an example of healing, compassion and support for the most vulnerable in our society
OLoL Trust Prayer
God Our Father,
Give us strength so that, guided by Our Lady’s example, we can have the courage to say yes to you.
Help us to love like she loved, have faith like she had and follow Jesus’ example in all that we do.
Inspire in all of us a sense of togetherness, so that we can use the gifts you have given us for the good of all in our community and bring support and healing to those less fortunate than ourselves.
We ask Our Lady to guide us, just as she guided St Bernadette, as we seek to bring Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness to others.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, Our Lord.
