Who's Who

Overall day to day oversight of Plymouth CAST is provided by the Chief Executive Officer:

CEO of Plymouth CAST     John Mannix                                                                                                                                     

The whole central team and many of the key CAST functions are overseen by our Office Manager and additional administrative support.

Office Manager for support team, PA to CEO     Helen Moram                                                                                                                                     

Events Co-ordinator     Debbie Beech                                                                                                                                     

Administration Officer      Karen Grute    

While all central support employees understand that ultimately their role is to support our Catholic mission, the Religious Education and spiritual life of the schools is more directly supported by:    

RE Adviser including Worship and Inspections; Diocesan Chaplains Co-ordinator      Sarah Adams                                                                                                       

Project Manager for Evangelisation      David Wells                                                                                                                                   

Recruitment and Development Co-ordinator      Diana Taylor (nee Samuelson)  

In all aspects of the life of our schools, the key link between each school, the Board of Directors and other central support services is the school’s Area Adviser.  

West Area Adviser      Neil Maslen                                                                                                                                 

Central Area Adviser     Mary Cox                                                                                                                                       

East Area Adviser      Jon Wood                                                                                                                                     

Central Finance and Human Resources staff work to ensure that there is a consistent policy framework across CAST’s schools and appropriate support systems to meet both statutory and mission expectations.
