The Hexham & Newcastle Catholic Partnership is a family of 12 schools in our diocese working collaboratively to offer additional opportunities for staff and students.
Formed in 1999 by the 5 Catholic Secondary Schools in Durham and Darlington to support staff CPD the partnership quickly grew to the 11 Catholic Secondary Schools in the south of the diocese. Now covering schools in Stockton, Hartlepool and Sunderland as well as Durham and Darlington the partnership evolved to offer events tailored to student learning as well as staff development.
In 2013 St Thomas More Catholic Academy, North Shields and St Joseph’s Catholic Academy, Hebburn joined the partnership. This same year the partnership became a company limited by guarantee with charitable status.
