Foundation Governor Recruitment
Governors perform a vital role in our school and are highly valued by the school, the parish and the Diocese. They provide strategic support and oversight, as well as maintaining and developing the Catholic character and ethos of our school.
If you feel you could support our schools as a Governor, please contact the Diocese of Lancater on 01524 841190 who will be able to talk you through the application process.
If you would like an informal chat with the Headteacher to discuss the prospect of becoming a Governor, as well as an overview of the training and support that will be given, please email the Headteacher at email@example.com
