Our legal objects

“To advance education, in such manner as befits a Catholic foundation, by:

  • the provision, development and conduct of a Catholic institution of higher education; and
  • the provision of training and continuing professional development for teachers in both religious and secular schools, with special provision for those intending to teach in Catholic and other Christian schools.”

(Articles of Association of St Mary’s University, Twickenham: approved by the Privy Council January 2014)

A Catholic foundation in higher education is understood as “an academic institution which in a rigorous and critical fashion assists in the advancement of human dignity and cultural heritage through research, teaching and services offered to local, national and international communities.”
