Are you interested in becoming a Foundation Governor?

Christian ministry takes many forms and church school governance is a rewarding part of the church’s mission.  Candidates don’t need to be Anglicans – other denominations are welcome.  You don’t need to be an educationalist – training is provided.  School governing bodies need experience from all walks of life.
