“Governors are jointly responsible for the conduct of the school, ensuring that the
best possible Catholic education is provided for the pupils attending the school.
This means ensuring the school is run according to its Articles of Association and
the Diocesan Trust Deed, that its religious character is preserved and developed,
and that pupils obtain high standards of academic achievement.”
