Becoming a Governor
The Diocesan policy requires Foundation governors to be practising Catholics. Foundation Governors are appointed in the name of the Archbishop and form the majority of the governing body of a Catholic school. They have a legal duty to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school and to ensure that the school is conducted in accordance with its trust deed.

Co-opted governors are appointed by the Governing Body to serve a term of four years. They are full governors with full voting rights. There is no requirement to be a Catholic but have a duty, the same as all other governors, to ensure the school is governed in accordance with the Instrument of Government
