On 1 June 2020, St Aidan’s Catholic Academy/St Anthony’s Girls’ Catholic Academy was transferred from Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Education Trust (Companies House: 07968898) to Bishop Chadwick Catholic Education Trust (Companies House: 09940352).
We have an active Governing Body which aims to share the strategic responsibility of promoting high educational standards and the Catholic ethos of the school. We work as a team in collaboration with Mr Sanderson and all staff members.
The Governing Body has representation from many stakeholders: Foundation governors are appointed by the Bishop; parent governors are elected by parents of current students; and staff governors are elected by all staff. All Governors are volunteers and receive no pay, including expenses.
The full Governing Body meets twice a term (business and development meetings) but the many sub committees (eg resources, curriculum, safeguarding, catholic life, admissions) meet more regularly.
Dr C Emmerson (Chair)
Cllr P Wood
Fr Christopher Hancock
Mr J Osmialowski
