Supporting every student to grow in faith and learning.
In 2020, Loyola and McCarthy Catholic Trade Training Centres became CathWest Innovation College.
Building on the achievements of both Trade Training Centres as well as Loyola Senior High, CathWest now offers exciting new options for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. McCarthy Catholic Trade Training Centre in Emu Plains became the McCarthy Campus of CathWest Innovation College, and Loyola in Mount Druitt is now known as CathWest Innovation College, Loyola Campus.
With innovative pathways for students alongside the current trade training pathway, CathWest Innovation College has a strong focus on developing skills for success.
Professional mentoring, industry partnerships, workplace placements and recognised qualifications support this learning.
With campuses in two convenient Western Sydney locations, we seek to provide young people with a wider range of educational options, in order to ensure more choices for a bright future. At CathWest we are putting students in the driver’s seat when it comes to their learning journey. Our students achieve because we teach them to believe in themselves the way we believe in them.

OUR FAITH JOURNEY
The teaching of Religious Education is central to all schools in the Diocese who share in the mission of the Church to share the story and vision of Jesus Christ through a daily personal encounter with Him. This personal encounter is reflected in the school’s liturgical and prayer life, sacramental preparation, attendance at parish masses, visits by the parish priest, pastoral care programs, social justice initiatives, music and art.
