Our Vision for School Chaplaincy in the Diocese of Nottingham is that:

We need the right person to help us to achieve this vision.  This exciting new role has arisen due to the formation of our 22 catholic school multi academy trust in Leicestershire - the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust.
