School Governors - Thomas More Catholic School

School Governors

We have an active and enthusiastic Governing Body that are responsible for the efficient and effective running of the School.  Led by a Chair and Vice-Chair, Governors represent all the stakeholders of the School – teachers, parents, Diocese and, of course, the students themselves.
