The Governing Body

The College is a Federation of St Richard Reynolds Catholic Primary School and St Richard Reynolds Catholic High School.

It is conducted on behalf of the Diocese of Westminster by a single Governing Body chaired by Luke Parker. Mr Parker is a parent of three children at the College and also one of our founding governors.  He has recently taken up the mantle of Chair following the successful service of our first Chair, Andrew Cole KSG, who remains a governor. 

There are currently up to twenty-two governors, the majority of whom are Foundation Governors, appointed by the Archbishop of Westminster, whose statutory duties include preserving and developing the Catholic character of the College. Foundation Governors are drawn from the Catholic community across the whole borough and beyond. The Governing Body includes parent, staff and local authority governors, as well as the Principal and others co-opted to provide specialist knowledge and skills.
