The Diocese is offering schools the opportunity to convert as part of a Multi Academy Trust.

We have worked with the Diocese to provide a tool kit of template documents and guidance to assist schools undertaking the journey to become an academy. The following documents are available to download here:



  • Diocesan Guidance/FAQs
  • Diocesan Application Form
  • Report for Governors
  • Note on Consultation
  • Template Consultation Letter
  • Due Diligence Questionnaire
  • Timeline for Conversion
  • Diocesan Memorandum of Understanding
  • Model Articles of Association
  • Model Scheme of Delegation
  • Template Church Supplemental Agreement

We have a dedicated team specialising in academy conversions for Catholic schools.  Do contact us if you are considering conversion!
