Meet the Governors

Just like every school, we have a group of volunteers who form our Governing Board. We have several kinds of governors determined by how they are elected to their role.

Foundation Governors are appointed by the Parish and Diocese.

Parent Governors are elected by our parents.

Staff Governors, (this includes the Head and a teacher), are either elected, or in the case of the Head, given a place due to their post.

Local Authority Governors are nominated by Lancashire County Council.

Governors meet each term to discuss matters affecting the school. They meet as both small committees, which oversee the buildings, finance, staffing and curriculum, and as a full body.

Currently, our Governing Board is made up of the following people:
