South Clifton Catholic Federation

South Clifton Catholic FederationNine Catholic schools in the southern part of the Diocese of Clifton have worked together for many years with transfer to St. Gregory’s Catholic College in Bath a central part of their work. In the last year, the schools decided to form a more formal partnership, or federation, to support each other and to help to provide an even better Catholic Christian education for young people in the area. With the development of The New Sixth, the federation will now be able to offer a Catholic Christian education to young people from the age of 4 to 18. The South Clifton Catholic Federation is what is known as a ‘soft’ federation – in other words the schools all remain distinctive, with their own governing bodies, but they work together with a common aim, in our case the promotion of Catholic education.

This year, the South Clifton Catholic Federation is about to expand as we welcome three private schools into the partnership. As part of a re-structuring at Clifton Diocese and the creation of the Clifton Catholic Diocese Foundation (CCDEF), local clusters and federations have assumed an even more important role in the accountability of all Catholic schools to the Bishop. We have therefore been pleased to welcome Prior Park College in Bath, Downside School in Stratton-on-the-Fosse and All Hallows School, Shepton Mallet. We will focus on what we have in common, which is our commitment to being a part of the mission of the Catholic Church. We will post more updates on SCCF events as the new and enlarged partnership develops its programme for working together.
