Upton Hall School

Meet the Governors

Guiding Lights

The Governors of Upton Hall School FCJ are an important team of people drawn from all walks of life. They include representatives of our Trustees, the FCJ sisters, parents and staff.  Their role is to contribute their skills to the school by monitoring and challenging the school’s performance and to provide opinions and guidance on school policy and strategic direction.

Terms of office are for four years (or for staff members so long as they continue to be a staff member at the school, whichever is the shorter).
