The Diocese of St Asaph is responsible for 51 church schools in north east and mid Wales. We have the highest number of church schools in any of the six dioceses of the Church in Wales.
Schools in the Diocese of St Asaph nurture children of all beliefs in the context of our Christian faith and ethos.
We have strong partnerships with the Welsh Government, local authorities, other Christian denominations and communities.
Church schools are inclusive by nature, welcoming children from families of all faiths and none, while recognising that faith is something that shapes people’s lives.
Church schools are committed to celebrating the rich heritage of faith, language and culture in Wales and provide a natural point of community focus, supported by a network of clergy and churches across Wales.
The Diocese of St Asaph works to ensure that all children and young people flourish educationally, spiritually and emotionally, especially in the Christian context of our church schools and colleges.
