Welcome to Plymouth CAST
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 1,300 staff and educate over 7,000 children and young people. Our head office is located at St Boniface's RC College in Plymouth.
We are passionately committed to the core aspiration of Catholic education which is the flourishing of the human person for the common good. To that end we have developed collaborative working and partnerships across our trust to ensure that local expertise and best practice in our schools are shared and developed, inspiring a community driven by an unwavering vision for excellence.
Our schools lay the foundations for all of our children to seek academic and spiritual growth. Each school seeks to improve the life chances of every child by raising their aspirations, equipping them with the qualifications, knowledge and skills they need to flourish as human beings and make the world a better place.
The Plymouth CAST website can only convey a small insight into the work of our vibrant and ambitious community. If you would like to find out more or arrange a visit to one of our schools, or indeed head office, please get in touch.
