Welcome to
The Painsley Catholic Academy

The Painsley Catholic Academy was established in 2012 and in September 2018 welcomed a union with Holy Trinity Catholic Multi Academy, making it the largest Catholic multi-academy company in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. 

Our family comprises two high schools and thirteen primary schools. We share a clear vision of how our schools can operate effectively, ensuring that each and every one of our students achieve their full potential in a caring and disciplined environment.  We are committed to providing each of our students with the best education possible.

As Chief Executive Officer (CEO), I am blessed to have outstanding staff, outstanding directors, outstanding support from parents and parishes and, crucially, outstanding and respectful students. I take the trust that you, as parents, put in me as CEO to care, guide and educate your child very seriously.

I assure you that I will work tirelessly to ensure that your child’s ambitions and God-given talents are realised.

Chief Executive Officer 
Mr S. G. Bell BA (Hons) PGCE MA NPQH
