Creating a first class learning environment

Our Trustees prioritise the School’s development and strategic plan to ensure that both the Nursery and School have the opportunity to grow and develop as their respective needs change.

They are committed to year round education and care, and as a registered charity the Trust invests in the fabric and structure of the school and nursery at all times.  With continual investment and commitment from both the Trustees and teaching staff, Our Lady’s provides a first class learning environment.

Ensuring school business is conducted in a responsible manner is also the responsibility of our Trustees. They use their years of experience to manage the school budget and provide support and guidance to the Headmaster in setting future priorities.
