posted on 08 February 2012

Bishop John Sherrington has given a speech about the Historical Importance and Impact of Catholic Education to the Diocese of Westminster's Secondary Head Teachers Conference at St Joan of Arc's School in Rickmansworth, held on 1 - 3 February 2012.

He identified five distinct contributions which show the historical importance and impact of Catholic education in England and Wales:
    The foundations laid by the religious in the early eighteenth and then nineteenth centuries.
    The Church works to ensure the access of all children, especially the poor, to education.
    Political involvement ensuring the provision and funding of Catholic education for all who desire it.
    The quantitative increase in places to meet need and the educational opportunities which arise from this.
    The constant focus on religious formation of persons and focus on its distinctive nature.
