About the Governing Body

There are 20 governors in total with a wide variety of experience. Governors work closely together with the Headteacher and the school. We formulate the aims and policies of the school. No individual governor has any over-arching authority; sub-committees have delegated powers awarded by the governing body as a whole. The chairman, however, has the authority to answer letters, deal with emergencies and liaise with the Headteacher without constant recourse to the full governing body.

Our school is a Voluntary Aided School. This means religious education and worship is led through the Christian faith and that we are able to apply specific requirements for student entry and staff appointments. The governing body is responsible for the costs of external building repairs.

The Archdiocese of Cardiff is our founding body and appoints the majority of governors, known as Foundation Governors. The governing body is a vital part of the leadership of the school and our role in developing the work of the school as a church school is independently inspected. The Headteacher, staff and governors work as a united team dedicated to realising a shared vision for the school.

The full governing body meets four times per year.
