The Trustees...

Since the school was founded in 1976, Stella Maris has been helping to create mature, confident individuals who are able to make their way in the world and achieve highly in their chosen professions.

It is a key objective of the Board of Trustees to provide a secure financial position for the school and so enable it to continue to deliver a rich Curriculum which will ensure academic success for its pupils.

The role of the Trustee is a voluntary one and we are always welcoming to anyone who may be interested in joining our expanding team. If you are interested please contact our Chair, Mr James Boyd.

James Boyd - Chair of Trustees

Trustee"I am a Barrister based in Manchester City Centre. I specialise in Employment Law, and feel that my experience both in that regard and in general Commercial Law can provide value to the School. I am also trained in and hold the role as the trustee for safeguarding which is a critical role and one I take very seriously. I have two children at Stella Maris and am fortunate to be a trustee and have an involvement in the running of such a wonderful school, alongside a team of such dedicated individuals and very motivated parents."

Georgina Hayes - Trustee

TrusteeAs parents, my husband and I chose Stella Maris school for our daughter because it represented a unique offering in our local area - a school small enough to provide the highest standards of pastoral care, yet ambitious enough to ensure every pupil fulfils their potential. I subsequently became a parent trustee 3 years ago, taking the opportunity to bring my professional experience in financial services and IT to bear in supporting the school. I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with my fellow trustees to ensure the ongoing success and development of the school, and enjoy working with them and the wider staff team to deliver our objective of being the school 'where successful futures begin".
