Welcome to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy Trust Website

We are delighted to welcome you to the Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy Trust website.  The Trust was founded in April 2015 with the aim of developing the whole child and ensuring Gospel Values drive aspiration in serving their community throughout their lives.  All those involved in the Trust want to ensure the long term sustainability of Catholic education within Newham.  Now comprising six primaries, St Antony’s, St Edward’s, St Francis’, St Helen’s, St Joachim’s and St-Winefride's, the schools are working collaboratively to offer an excellent high quality education for all our children.  Along staff and governors, the trustees are now seeking to share expertise and resources as we work “Together in Christ.”
