At St Francis, we pride ourselves on our happy and welcoming community. Our aim is to ensure that all children are given the best possible start to their education. We encourage every child to do their best in the classroom and to achieve in all other aspects of school life as well. The range of opportunities in academics, sport, music, art and design, drama, technology and in extra-curricular clubs allows our pupils to identify and develop their talents and builds self-confidence across their whole educational experience.
Our Core Values, summarised in the ‘St Francis Framework’, are based on Christian principles, setting out for all members of the school community the right way to behave and to treat each other. We teach the importance of respect for others, good manners, kindness and honesty.
You are warmly invited to visit us: I would be delighted to show you around our school and to explain in more detail how St Francis would inspire your child.
