Xavier Catholic Education Trust

St Polycarp's school is part of the Xavier Catholic Education Trust family of schools. Xavier CET was set up in 2016, when a group of Catholic schools came together wanting to support each other to consistently deliver exceptional educational experiences for all the children in our care.

Catholicity At Our Core

Our Catholic faith is central to all that we do as it is the source of the values that inspire our work. While we welcome applicants from all faith and none, we ask that the people working within our trust and at our schools are equally committed to what we together are trying to achieve: to help every child become the person they are called to be, live life to the full and play their part in making our world a better place in the future.

 Our strategic aims are to ensure…

  • Every child will receive an excellent education

  • We will recruit, develop and retain the best people

  • We will support our schools by providing exceptional central services

  • Our Catholicity is at the core of everything we do

  • We are financially robust and provide value for money

  • We will maintain high levels of service whilst expanding
