The aim of Carmel Education Trust is to provide a practical and moral purpose to the furthering of education, giving strength and a collective responsibility for the educational welfare of pupils in our schools.

Carmel Education Trust has overarching accountability and governance of a number of Academies. Carmel College, Holy Family, St Augustine’s and St Bede’s Primary Schools, Darlington. Our Lady and St. Bede, St Gregory’s Primary School, and St. Bede Stockton. St Michael’s Catholic Academy and Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Billingham and St Joseph’s, Norton. All members benefit from the strong ethos and quality governance. Carmel’s Teaching School status and it’s strong links with the National College for Teaching and Leadership means that professional development of staff is central to the work of the Trust.

Being members of the trust has formalised the collaboration between schools sharing a vision to provide the best possible outcomes for all our children. This is an exciting time for all the schools involved and we provide a wealth of opportunities for students and staff across the Trust.
