School Governance


We have an active and enthusiastic Governing Body that is responsible for the efficient and effective running of the School. Led by a Chair and Vice-Chair, Governors represent all the stakeholders of the school – teachers, parents, Diocese, and of course, the pupils themselves.

Initial contact with Governors can be made via email through the Clerk to the Governors: Ms C Mingay:
