Welcome to St Francis College. When going through our website you will notice the repeated reference to a ‘safe and secure environment’, this is not a happy coincidence. The school was founded on this very principle and as we continue to ensure that this remains at the heart of the school, your child will be reminded of our three cardinal aspirations; respect, diligence and kindness.
Our school motto, ‘Ad siderum’ from the Latin ’reach for the stars’, is a constant reminder to our pupils to give of their best in all spheres of school life; academic, sport and culture. I am extremely proud to be associated with a school that endeavours to make a difference not only in the lives of our learners but also in the wider community - I look forward to welcoming you to the St Francis College family.
