1.3 Instrument and Articles of Management for Comprehensive Schools (link)
There are nine Comprehensive Schools in which the Catholic Bishop of the local Diocese is a Trustee and five Comprehensive Schools in which the local Church of Ireland Board of Education is a Trustee.
The Deed of Trust and Articles of Management for “Catholic” Comprehensive Schools have been amended and are now the legal instruments which govern the management of these schools. The amended scheme is entitled “Endorsement on Deed of Trust for Comprehensive Schools” The Trustees in these schools, namely, the local Bishop and the Minister for Education and Science fulfil the role of patron as required under the Education Act.
Discussions are underway and nearing completion on corresponding revised arrangements for the governance of “Protestant” Comprehensive Schools.
