What is the Diocese of Westminster?

The Diocese of Westminster is comprised of 212 parishes and 207 schools located in the London boroughs North of the River Thames, West of the Lea River and in the County of Hertfordshire.

The Education Service of the Diocese plays a crucial role in supporting these schools to ensure their success, whilst upholding the Trust Deed of the Diocese. They offer valuable guidance on a wide range of educational matters and place great value on strong partnerships, including the support provided by the Catholic Education Service. Aquinas Education is excited to be working alongside the Diocese to provide support to these schools, students, and staff.

The Diocese of Westminster emphasises the importance of strong partnerships and the significant role that Catholic schools and colleges play in the mission of the Catholic Church. Their Diocesan schools make a substantial contribution to education in London, Hertfordshire, and Surrey, with the aim of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to future generations.
