Secondary Education  

Each of the 10 secondary schools in our Archdiocese strives to work in conjunction with home and parish to promote the mission and vision of Catholic Education that is Gospel centred, inclusive and welcoming.  Each pupil is treasured, encouraged and challenged to achieve their full potential in a caring and supportive environment. 

The Archdiocesan Advisor for Secondary Schools is Margaret Murray who is available to support the work of each school.
