The primary role of the Full Governing Body (FGB) is to work in partnership with the Head Teacher and School Leadership Team to maximise the learning opportunities for all the pupils and to implement the School Development Plan. Each year we publish an annual report which summarises our achievements and workings.

The formal Instrument of Governance provides for 12 Governors which consists of:

Foundation Governors are appointed by Bishop Declan and represent the Bishop. They are appointed specifically to ensure:
Once in place each Governor plays a full and equal part in the running and management of the school. Nobody is there to represent their particular group. The majority of Governors do not have an educational background, however, they bring experience and expertise from their home and work lives which the school find invaluable.
Our Governing Body is split into 4 sub-committees - Resource, Teaching & Learning, Admissions and Foundation. Please click here to find out more about each sub-committee and their responsibilities.
