Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. (Romans 13:1)

Local governing body

Derby Cathedral School is held accountable by a local governing body and, in turn, the trust board of directors.

The role of the local governing body is to monitor the school's key performance indicators within the set scheme of delegation alongside the Headteacher and senior leaders. Each governor is linked to a key area in school. These are shown in the table below. 

The current governing body consists of:
