Burscough Priory Science College

Welcome to the Governors section of the School's website, here's a short explanation of who we are and what we do. Firstly, we are all volunteers, from all walks of life, some are involved in education, some have a financial background, and some are in managerial positions. Hopefully we bring a wide range of talent and experience to help challenge and support the Head teacher and her staff. Parent Governors, as the name suggests are normally parents of children who are either currently at or have recently left Priory, they are elected by current parents.

Authority Governors, these are appointed by the local authority and should normally reflect a balance of the political parties. Community Governors, these are appointed by the rest of the Governing Body and are usually people who may not have a direct connection with the school but are considered to be an asset to the running of the school by virtue of their experience or position.
