The Governing Body makes decisions for all four of the schools which, together, form the Loughborough Endowed Schools (Fairfield, Loughborough Grammar School, Loughborough High School and Our Lady’s Convent School). Regular meetings are held of both the whole Governing Body and of the sub committees and the High School, like the three other schools in the foundation, is represented by the head of the school.
