I joined the Governing Body in April 2014 as a Foundation Governor and was elected Chair of Governors in September 2016.
I am married with five children all of whom have been educated at OLQM.
I am a Parishioner of English Martyrs' Parish and I work as an Actuary at Aviva.
Lee is the Chair of the Finance, Staffing and Premises Sub-Committee.
I’m a proud dad to two daughters: both currently at the School. I live in Acomb, am a regular at English Martyrs' Church and, although not born and bred here, really proud (and lucky) to call York my home.
I became a Governor in March 2016 and have recently set up a Communications Group to look at all aspects of how the School talks and listens to parents, the wider community and the children. I hope I’ll be able to apply some of what I know from my day job, where I work in internal communications.
When I’m not at work (or being a Governor) I like all things outdoors-y. A walk in the hills, messing about in the sea, a drink by the river….
I have been teaching since 1996 in Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage (previously at Our Lady’s and now at OLQM). I currently teach the Nursery Class for 2 ½ days a week and feel passionately about the importance of Early Years education.
I joined the Governing Body in 2010. In that time I have had a variety of responsibilities and am currently a member of the Finance, Staffing and Premises Committee. I am an active member of my local Church, where I am the Assistant Treasurer and a member of the Finance Committee.
In my spare time I like to keep fit and healthy and have recently qualified as a fitness instructor.
Hello, I'm Catherine Fairclough and I've recently been appointed as a Foundation Governor following on from 3 years as a Parent Governor.
I have two children at OLQM and two children at All Saints. As a family we belong to Our Lady's Parish.
I am passionate about education being a Teacher myself and being married to a Teacher. My area of focus is more the academic side of governance although all aspects are interwoven. Particular areas that interest me are RE (as the Link Governor), SEN / inclusivity, communication and sport.
Fr Tony Lester (Foundation Governor)
