Meet the Governors

Loucas Georgiou (Chair)

Born In Manchester with Cypriot parents, I am married to Anne, with 3 grown up children, Thomas, Joseph and Ellena.  I am now semi-retired after 32 years in Banking at Nat West then RBS.  I started my own business in 2011 delivering ecological heating across the country.

In the last 2 years I have built a training centre to help retrain adults in the Gas and Power industry.

I am a great lover of sport and played Rugby Union for many years, I still play badminton regularly and have been a passionate Manchester City supporter for over 50 years.

As a practicing Catholic I wanted to become a Governor in a Catholic school.  I strongly believe that every child should be allowed to develop to their full potential and we as a governing body must ensure that we create a safe environment where children can grow, learn and suceed in faith, school and life.

Please note the Chairperson can be reached via the school office. Any correspondance to be sent in a sealed envelope which will be forwarded to her address.

Fr John McLoughlin

Fr John was born in St Richard’s parish at Atherton in 1963 the youngest of eight children. He began his studies for the priesthood as a junior seminarian at St Joseph’s College, Upholland in 1976. Following his time at Upholland College he was sent to All Hallows College, Dublin and gained a diploma in Philosophy and a Sacred Theology Baccalaureate from the Pontifical University of Maynooth. In June 1987, he left All Hallows and took up a teaching post with the La Sainte Union Sisters at Grays Convent High School leaving in 1989 to continue his studies for the priesthood at the Venerable English College, Rome. In 1992 he gained a Sacred Liturgy Licence from the Pontifical Liturgical Institute of San Anselmo.

In his twenty-five years as priest of the Archdiocese of Liverpool Fr McLoughlin has ministered at the Cathedral of Christ the King and as chaplain to The Royal Liverpool University Hospital, assistant in the parishes of St. Vincent de Paul, Our Lady’s and St. Joseph’s at St Helens, assistant in the parishes of St. Sylvester’s and St. Alphonsus’ at Liverpool, and parish priest to St Wilfrid’s parish at Ashton-In-Makerfield and later of the neighbouring parish of Holy Family, Platt Bridge. As well as parochial duties Fr McLoughlin has had a variety of other responsibilities over the years: secretary to the Liverpool Archdiocesan Council of Priests, secretary to the Department of Art & Architecture, chaplain to the Liverpool Catholic Teachers Association (now CATSC), Chair of the Liverpool Archdiocesan Liturgy Commission, assistant to George Andrew Committee for the organisation of the living accommodation for the retired priests, member of the pilot group for Priestly Appraisal, and a member of the Board of Management of the Broughton Society. For the past 10 years before coming to the Parish of St Stephen’s and St Bridget’s Fr John was Episcopal Vicar for Formation and a Trustee of the Archdiocese of Liverpool with responsibility for the ‘Continuing Development of the Clergy’ and ‘Adult Faith Formation’. During this time Fr John also served as chaplain to the Carmelite Sisters in Maryton Grange, Allerton, Liverpool.

Gail Dixon

My name is Gail Dixon and I have recently been appointed as a governor at St. Bridget’s.

I am originally from Bolton but spent many years following my husband around the country as a military wife before we eventually settled in Warrington in 1999.

I have four children and so far have been blessed with seven grandchildren.

I work as a Financial Adviser and apart from family get-togethers my main interests are reading, social ballroom dancing and camping.

I am really looking forward to helping support the staff and pupils of St Bridget’s.

Sarah Watson

My name is Sarah Watson and I am pleased to be nominated by the staff as staff governor.

Origionally from Newcastle, I have now settled with my family in Warrington. I trained as a teacher in the Lake District qualifying in 1998. I have enjoyed teaching different age ranges in many different primary schools around the North West of England. I have worked at Warrington Collegiate tutoring HNC  and HND courses as well as having my own education training business.

I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and camping. I spend a lot of my weekend transporting my children to various sporting activites, standing on the sidelines cheering.

I am looking forward to helping St Bridget's school and children shine like the stars they are!

Chris Kendrick

C Kendrick


My name is Chris Kendrick. I am a former pupil of St Bridget’s having left in 1994 to go on to study at Cardinal Newman Catholic High School where I now work as a Teacher of Science.

In between leaving Newman and now working there, I joined the Army and served 11 years in the REME as an Avionics Technician working on the Gazelle, Lynx and Apache aircraft. In that time I took part in exercises in the US, Germany and the North Sea, and was deployed to Afghanistan for three operational tours. It was during the downtime of these deployments that I studied towards a degree in Physics with the Open University. I reached the rank of Sergeant, and so a lot of my duties pertained to mentoring younger technicians who had finished training, and were new to the airframes, and it was then that I realised I wanted to go into teaching after leaving the Army.

I was enrolled on the Troops to Teachers training programme and began teaching at The Heath School Runcorn for three years, followed by Ormiston Bolingbroke Academy, Runcorn for a further five years. I am married to Kirsty, I have three children, and I attend Mass at St Stephen’s Church.
