Every school has a Governing Body made up of a group of volunteers. All schools have an individual Instrument of Government, which is a legal document setting out how many governors there are, who appoints, elects and co-opts them, who is eligible to be a governor and how long they serve.
Foundation governors are appointed by the Bishop of Shrewsbury to represent the interests of the Catholic Church that provides the school.
The local authority of Halton helps maintain the school, and also appoints a Governor. The parents of registered pupils at the school elect two individual parents to be Parent Governors. Staff at the school may elect a staff Governor and the Headteacher is a Governor.
A Governor’s term of office runs for 4 years, after which they may be re-appointed.
