Local Governing BoARD (LGB)

Welcome from the Chair

I have been a Foundation Governor at BWH for

11 years, and prior to that was a Foundation Governor

at St Patricks Catholic Primary school, one of BWH’s

Feeder Primary schools.  As Chair of Governors, I

value working closely with the other Governors, the school SLT, parents and the Directors of our Painsley MAC.

I am passionate about Catholic Education and am very aware that our role is to support and challenge the school as they set high standards for all the students who attend.

The LGB is responsible for ensuring the successful delivery by the Principal of the day-to-day operational matters affecting the daily life of our individual academy as delegated by the MAC Directors.  We are key in preserving and developing the religious and educational character, mission and ethos of the academy in collaboration with the Principal.

It is our aim to ensure all our students leave BWH as well-rounded individuals equipped with the very best skills and qualities which enable them to take full advantage of all the opportunities which face them in their future.

Both of my own children attended Blessed William Howard and have gone on to have very successful careers.  I also now have five grandchildren, three of whom are currently attending BWH.

Thank you all for putting your trust in our Catholic School Academy here at BWH
