Anne Marie Horrocks - Chair and Foundation Governor
I was asked to become the local authority governor at the school 9 years ago and I am now one of the foundation governors. Both my children attended the school.
I am an active member of our parish and,as such, I'm also committed to maintaining and promoting the school’s Catholic character and mission ensuring that the whole curriculum ‘is taught in the light of gospel values and actively promotes the spiritual and moral development of the pupils’.
As part of the governing board I am keen to influence the future direction of the school and support the vision to help St Gilbert’s grow from strength to strength.
I thoroughly enjoy being a governor even though it is hard work and I feel supported in this by the other dedicated governors, headteacher and staff.
One of the rewards of being a governor is being aware that you have helped to ensure the children at St Gilbert’s have a happy and safe environment where they can learn and achieve their full potential.
In my limited spare time I enjoy reading and spending time with friends and family.
Dominic Abraham-Burgess - Foundation Governor
My name is Dominic Abraham-Burgess, I hail from London, but Manchester is my home. I am an events & community manager for the Co-op and also an active member of the Parish of St John Paul ll.
I wanted to become a governor because I want to support & work as a team with the teachers to enable the children to use & find new skills and abilities to do the best they can. I want to help the school to continually raise the standards they have to the benefit of the children, but most of all be a friend to the school.”
