Board of Governors

The Foundation and the school are under the responsibility of a Board of Governors whose members are appointed by representatives (or trustees) of the British community. The Governors appoint the Headmaster who is responsible for the day to day running of St. Paul’s School and work hard to support him to ensure the continued excellence of the education it offers. The overall task of the Board of Governors is to ensure that the school runs successfully and smoothly in accordance with its stated aims. The Board of Governors meets approximately once per month and is responsible for overseeing general educational policy, long term strategic direction, development of infrastructure,  financial control and compliance with current rules and regulations.
