Our School App Stay connected on the go...



The Governing Body is made up of eleven members, drawn from the school staff, parents, representatives from the Diocese (foundation governors) and the Local Authority. The Archbishop of Westminster appoints foundation governors and all others are elected (parents by the parent body, staff by the staff of the school). The Clerk is appointed by the Governors.

Foundation governors ensure that the Catholic ethos of the school is maintained.

To conduct our business we delegate decision-making to committees or, where appropriate, to individuals such as the Headteacher. Most of our business is done through meetings, making best use of established guidance, and seeking the advice of the Headteacher. To carry out our duties effectively, we have established committees each chaired by a leader elected by the governors. 

Governors arrange informal visits to get to know staff and students.  We also ensure our visibility to staff and students by attending events such as: educational 'walk and talk' tours, open days, prize giving and masses at the school.

The Governors feel very proud of the School and remain conscious of its traditions dating back to 1934 when it was founded by the Dominican Sisters.
