Board of Management

Our board of management is responsible for the overall management and administration of our school. The board's main function is to ensure that the school provides a quality education to all pupils in a safe and inclusive environment. This involves managing the school's finances, policies, facilities, and staff. The board is a body corporate, members are not representatives for their constituencies, rather the board works together, united in common purpose to act for the good of the school.

The board also plays a key role in promoting the school's values and ethos and fostering positive relationships with the wider school community.
