Board of Governors

It has considerable responsibility for the management of the school and works closely with the Principal.
As well as nominees of the Trustees, the Department Of Education For Northern Ireland (DENI), and the Education Authority (EA), its membership includes an elected parent governor and a teacher elected by the teaching staff.  The Principal of the School is also a member. The board therefore represents all the main interests concerned with the school.

1. The Catholic Ethos
2. School Development Planning
3. Curriculum and Educational Standards
