Governors - About Us

The Governors have a vital part to play in the life of our school. They are closely involved in many aspects of school life including finance, curriculum, personnel and building issues.

All parents of children in school have the opportunity to take part in the election for the Parent Governors at the end of their four year term of office.

At St Thomas, we are very fortunate to have a Governing Body who take a keen interest in the school, and whose support is vital for our future.
