Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors' section.

The governors comprise the head teacher, the foundation governors appointed by the Oxford Diocese on recommendations from St John the Baptist PCC, the council governor appointed by the RBWM Cabinet and the parent and teacher governors elected by their peers.  The governors share collective responsibility for the school as a whole and oversee the leadership of the head teacher and her team.  Please do not hesitate to contact any of the governors at any time via office@cookhamdean.org
