Catholic Education in Arundel and Brighton
Catholic schools and colleges are established to support Catholic parents in their responsibility for the academic, physical, spiritual, moral and religious education of their children in accordance with the teachings of the Church.
Catholic education endeavours to make the person of Jesus Christ known and loved, and to place Him and the teachings of the Church at the centre of the educational enterprise.
Bishops have extensive obligations and rights in relation to Catholic schooling in order to ensure the Catholic ethos and character of any school in the Diocese. In Arundel and Brighton, the Bishop's obligations and rights are carried out through the Diocesan Education Service.
