The Governing Body

Back to Key Information

In common with other schools, our governing body represents the public in the running of Bishop Challoner Boys’ School and Girls’ School and Sixth Form. The governors bring a variety of perspectives and a wealth of experience and work with the staff and the local authority to help secure the best possible education for the children in our federation. Our governors meet regularly and have important responsibilities like managing the school budget, overseeing the curriculum and appointing staff. Other areas of responsibility include: promoting high standards of educational attainment, setting targets for pupil achievement, regulating staff conduct and discipline, and drawing up an action plan after an Ofsted inspection.

Fr D Evans, Chair of Governors, can be contacted via Reception
