The current Board of Management has both long serving and new members, ensuring continuity and renewal, and is also gender balanced. Regular contact is maintained with the Loreto Trustees. The Board makes an annual report to the Loreto Education Trust and the trust’s education officer visits the school every year to discuss any findings or implications of the report. Training is offered to all new board members.
