There must be changes in the governance of the school and Trust. A separate charitable trust shall be set up to manage the school. The school’s board of governors shall be given executive authority, and shall be recruited from a wider range than is current for the Board of Advisers. At least two seats on the Board of Governors shall be reserved for parents of pupils at the school. Each parent governor shall be elected by parents for a two-year term, with an election held each year for one parent governor. One seat on the Board of Governors shall be reserved for the Archbishop of Westminster or his nominee. No monk or priest of Ealing Abbey shall have a place on the Board of Governors. It is not intended that these changes will remove the Catholic emphasis of the school, but will remove responsibility for the school from the Abbot and Trustees.Basically, the key point is that the monks can no longer run the school. Running a modern school takes a wider range of knowledge, background and experience than the monks can muster. There has to be a break. By all means maintain a link of some sort, by all means have monks visiting the school, or even teaching in it if they are qualified to do. But the governors must be drawn from a wider pool of talent.
So there has to be a formal separation between the School and the Abbey. that means separate charitable trusts for each, and some suitable division of the trust's reserves.
The Board of Advisers needs to be converted into a proper board of governors, and given the authority to make decisions for the school, and the governors need to be drawn from a wider range of people than just ex-pupils. Parents need to be governors. The Archbishop's nominee is intended to help maintain the overall Catholic nature of the school.
