Governors

The Governing Body of Saint Paul's Catholic High School is made up of a wide-ranging cross-section of representatives including parents, teachers, parish priests, local authority representatives and elected representatives from the commumity.  The Headteacher is also a member of the Governing Body.

The Governors are keen to foster all aspects of School life and are particularly interested in the maintaining of high standards of work and personal behaviour set in the context of our Catholic Faith.
