About Us

Plymouth CAST is a multi academy trust of thirty four Catholic schools and one nursery, formed in 2014, which includes all of the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Plymouth, except the two joint faith schools. In geographical terms, the Trust extends across seven local authority areas from Penzance in Cornwall to Poole in Dorset. We have 1,500 staff and educate 7,300 children and young people in our care. Our head office is located at St Boniface's RC College in Plymouth.


Our mission is to be a community of outstanding schools in which our pupils flourish in safe, happy and stimulating environments, leaving with the knowledge, skills, personal qualities and aspirations to make the world a better place.

"We are passionately committed to the core aspiration of Catholic education which is the flourishing of the human person for the common good."


We value the professional development of our staff and are dedicated to providing high quality Continuing Professional Development across all areas of school life, coupled with a collaborative and supportive framework for effective teamwork. We believe that together we are much stronger and work in close partnership to create a vision for education that is outward-facing, spiritually uplifting and enriching for all.
