The Governing body of any school has an essential role to play.

St Joseph’s College is a Charitable Trust and as such the role of a Governor is as a trustee of a legally-constituted board of the trust.  Governors plan the strategic objectives of the school, ensure its financial health and that the school conforms to legal requirements.  They are at the heart of how the school operates.

St Joseph’s is fortunate to have a governing body consisting of members with a variety of skills and experience from a number of different industries.  Their combined knowledge is crucial in supporting the College's management team in the decision making process and offer advice and guidance in the management of the school.

Current members of the Governing Body are:

Mr C Murray              Chair of Governors

Mrs P Grainger           Vice-Chair of Governors

Miss K Gripton           Vice-Chair of Governors, Chair Remuneration Committee

Sister Helen-Marie     Congregational Representative

Mrs H Buckle             Prep School Link Governor

Dr M Cross                 Governor responsible for Child Protection

Mr C D'Cruz               Chair Spiritual Life Committee

Ms J Feeney               Congregational Representative,  Chair Education Committee

Mr D Hallé               

Mr J Hennah              Chair Finance & General Purposes Committee
