Gumley House Convent School FCJ is single-academy trust within the FCJ Educational Trust, and part of the Diocese of Westminster.
A Board of Governors governs the school and is legally responsible for it. The Board is the key decision-making body and has three core governance functions: setting the direction of the trust; holding executive leaders to account for educational performance and ensuring money is well spent.
Local governors, appointed or elected from different parts of our school community, serve on our local governing body. The Chair of the Governing Body is Christine Grindrod. To get in touch with the Chair, contact Christine Grindrod, Gumley House School FCJ Governing Body, St. John's Road, Isleworth TW7 6XF or firstname.lastname@example.org (FAO Christine Grindrod).
The local governing body meets four times a year to conduct business. Some aspects of its work are carried out by sub-committees or by link governors who visit our schools to focus on particular areas.
The information below includes statutory information in regard to governors meetings and activities.
Register of Interests
We must ensure that our decisions are free from personal bias and do not unfairly benefit any individual or company connected with the trust. To that end, directors and local governors must register their personal and business interests at the start of the year and declare potential conflicts of interest if they arise.
The Register of local governor attendance at Governing Body meetings is published here at and updated termly.
