Sister Jane Livesey CJ appointed President of Prior Park Educational Trust

The Governors and Principal of Prior Park Schools are delighted to announce the appointment of Sister Jane Livesey CJ as the new President of Prior Park Educational Trust. Sister Jane succeeds Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor, who was President at the time of his passing in September this year. 

Sister Jane has close links with Prior Park; she was also a good friend of Cardinal Cormac.  From 1985 – 1998 Sister Jane was Headmistress of St Mary's School Shaftesbury, one of the College’s sister schools within the Catholic Independent Schools’ Conference (CISC). During this time she joined Prior Park's governing body.  Sister Jane became Prior Park’s first female Chair of Governors in 2005 and served as Chair until 2011 when she was appointed as the general superior of the Congregation of Jesus (CJ), based in Rome. 

Sister Jane said she is “both delighted and deeply honoured to take up the role of President.”
