The Painsley MAC Vision and mission


We share a clear vision of how our schools can operate effectively, ensuring that each and every one of our students achieve their full potential in a caring and disciplined environment. We are committed to providing each of our students with the best education possible.

We believe that all of our students have the right to a safe and enjoyable education in a positive, disciplined and caring environment. This presents every child with a challenge to be the best person they can be, to reach their full academic potential and to realise their dreams.  Working together and supporting each other as a close family of schools we believe that we are, and will continue to be,

Better Together

As a Catholic Academy gospel values are at the centre of our family of schools. Our aim is to provide the highest quality of education in order to develop and fulfil the potential of all students in our care, from age 3 to 18.

The faith development of our students is of paramount importance and whilst we strive to live in a faith community, we also ensure opportunity for the development of religious belief and religious literacy to ensure the foundations of faith in all our students.


Through our Catholic faith
we grow in the love of God and each other;
we show respect in our words and actions;
we serve our communities and the world;
we learn to be the best we can be;
becoming better together as children of God.
