"I became a Foundation Director because I am passionate about good Catholic Education. I believe it is an amazing instrument for social good. This role gives me a great opportunity to use my God given talent to contribute to His work here on earth."
"My hope is that in the not too distant future, this Trust (and every school within it) will be nationally recognised as synonymous with outstanding academic performance and rich Christian values."
