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.

Victoria Quinn (Vice Chair)

I was born and raised in North-East Manchester leaving in 2012 for work.  After a few years living in Macclesfield I moved to Warrington in 2015.  I attended Keele University and obtained a degree in History and International Relations.  During my undergraduate degree I spent a semester studying abroad in Oregon, which was a fantastic expereince that I still look back fondly on.  After graduating I joined the NHS' Graduate Management Training Scheme, specialising in general management.  I obtained my MSc in Health and Public Leadership in 2013 and have PRINCE2 and Managing Successful Programmes qualifications.  I have spent the majority of my career working within the NHS and have also worked for BUPA.  I currently work at NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group as a Senior Service Improvement Manager for Urgent and Emergency Care.

I got married to my husband Chris in 2017 and attend St Bridget's church.  I like to spend my free time with my family and I also enjoy reading, watching films and am starting to develop a love of 'Escape Room' games.

This is my first governor role and I am looking forward to supporting all of the staff and pupils at   St Bridget's School.

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.

Mags Cawley


Mrs Cawly is a long standing and very experienced governor. 


Tony Redmond

Born and brought up in north Liverpool I attended St Edward’s College in the city and obtained my degree – in Philosophy, Politics and Economics - from Oxford University. I qualified as a Chartered Public Finance Accountant in the early 1970s and then spent almost 20 years in teaching and training accountants in higher education. In the 1990s I moved into management consultancy working extensively on the government’s national vocation training initiative. As that programme wound down I moved into long-term public financial management consultancy in the developing world, working in Uzbekistan, Yemen, Afghanistan, South Africa and Lesotho over a period of about 15 years. I retired from full-time work in 2014 but still undertake occasional consultancy assignments abroad.

In the 1990s I was variously a member, chair and finance chair of the governing body of a large primary school in St Helens and a member of the GB of Carmel College, chairing its audit committee. I took up my work as a school governor again when I retired and am currently a member of the GB of Sutton Oak primary school in St Helens. I am married with two adult sons and one grandson and live in St Helen. I attend mass at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish in Portico where I am a member of the parish finance team. I have a particular interest in school finance, management and planning issues and I am very pleased to have been offered the opportunity to work with staff and fellow governors at St Bridget’s
