Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough  


The Diocese of Middlesbrough is in urgent need of volunteer governors for our Diocesan schools. In particular, to ensure the Bishop always has a majority voting position on his school governing bodies, we need people who can serve as Foundation Governors. Foundation Governors must be practising Catholics who can obtain a reference from their Parish Priest to confirm they are eligible to serve.

Education professionals are ideally placed to add capacity, knowledge and understanding to our governance arrangements so we are extremely keen to explore the potential for teachers and support staff in our schools or schools outside of the Diocese to come forward to fill these critical roles in Catholic education.

We do not place Foundation Governors who are current employees within their own school and we would wish to work with you in identifying a potential school you may be able to support within this role.

If you feel you could help in serving as a Foundation Governor in a Catholic school  or would like further information on what the role may involve please contact Kevin Duffy, Diocesan Director of Schools on 01642 850515 or email
