Welcome to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy

Mr CuomoIt is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy. It is a privilege for me to be the Principal of this great community and I hope that this website will give you an insight into what the Academy has to offer your child as well as being an important source of information for both parents and students.

First of all, Christ the King is a living faith community inspired by the spirit of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Academy’s ethos and mission are rooted in the traditions of the Catholic faith where we strongly believe that every child should be nurtured and cared for according to the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ. In addition, the Christ the King community works in close partnership with four parishes to ensure that the links between the Catholic Church and our Academy remain strong.

On October 1st 2012, Christ the King Catholic School and Sixth Form converted to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy, part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) namely, Pax Christi. The MAT comprises Christ the King and its four Primary partners, Holy Cross, St Margaret Clitherow, Sacred Heart and The Good Shepherd. The conversion to a MAT allows all five institutions to work in close partnership with each other thus reaping the rewards of cross-phase, collaborative working practices.

May I take this opportunity to encourage you to visit the Academy yourselves so that you can experience at first-hand the stimulating, captivating and deeply spiritual atmosphere which makes Christ the King unique.

Carlo Cuomo
