Considering joining us as a governor?

Governors play a vital role in the life of St Anne's Catholic School, ensuring the school maintains as high as possible a standard of teaching and learning, is managed efficiently and effectively and remains true to its mission as a Catholic School.

Governors both support and challenge the school leadership to help our school to follow the example of Jesus Christ who came into our world that we may “have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10).

In Catholic Schools, Christ is at the centre of everything we do in our quest to form and educate young people for the good of society as a whole. At St Anne’s we give children the opportunity to discover, or rediscover their relationship with God in an ethos of light and safety, so that they may know who they are, how they relate to others and what part they will play in the world. Our girls are God’s children, made in God’s image and likeness; they carry a gift the world waits for and urgently needs, and it is our task to help them find it and educate them to know how to use it.

As an LSU Religious Order school, the Sisters of La Sainte Union remain involved with the school today as our Trustees. They appoint our foundation governors whose role it is to ensure the school is run “in accordance with the principles, practices and tenets of the Roman Catholic Church and in accordance with the Mission of the Foundation Trust”. Other governors include parent governors and staff governors who are each able to give their own unique perspective on the strategic direction of the school.
