Supporting 119 primary and secondary schools and academies across our diocese with advice on senior appointments, curriculum and building matters

Our education team is a source of support for our church schools and academies. We support on a wide range of matters including support for governors and Headteachers on senior appointments. We also oversee the SIAMS inspections. The Diocesan Board of Education is a partner in DBE Services which supports church schools across the northern province.
