A few words from Frances;

“I grew up in Rotherham, and believe the supportive experience in my Catholic secondary school allowed me to see the importance of education to allow children to reach their potential whatever their starting point. I have worked in Diocesan schools for the most of my 25 years in education, across Wakefield, Leeds and Bradford, firstly as an RE teacher and for the last 18 years as a senior leader as well. I am currently a Deputy Head in Bradford. I am passionate about Catholic education and volunteered as a trust director because I believe it is very important that Catholic education is developed and nurtured within a network of schools with the same vision and ethos. I have one son, who is currently in a local Catholic school within Leeds”
