Following their meeting in Glasgow this week (10 - 13 March), Scotland's Catholic Bishops, restated their support for Catholic schools and their confidence in their future.  

Welcoming members of the Catholic Education Commission to their Conference, the Bishops made clear their belief, that Catholic schools provided high quality education, that addressed the academic and spiritual needs of pupils. They viewed denominational schools as a great success story of Scottish education.  

Speaking after being voted President of the Catholic Education Commission, Bishop Joseph Devine, Bishop of Motherwell, said:  
"Despite recent opinion polls questioning support for Catholic schools, large numbers of parents, continue to send their children to them and express their support for them. We remain committed to ensuring, that the Catholic education service continues to deliver a high standard of education to our young people. A high standard that has been recognised consistently in HMI reports on denominational schools."
