Study @ St Francis Preparatory

St Francis Collegiate prepares students to be responsible, globally-minded, compassionate, and reflective learners. Our rigorous academic program creates space and time for critical reflection on basic questions about what is good, fair, and just. We teach to the heart as well as the mind.

Message from the Preparatory Principal

In the Preparatory School, we have dedicated teachers who recognise that Education goes beyond the classroom. Within our warm family environment, we attempt to instill a set of core values enabling our pupils to participate in the school and the broader community as responsible, caring and productive human beings. In the words of Sir Arthur Helps, ‘Nothing succeeds like success’. All pupils are carefully guided towards experiencing successful outcomes thus leading to a healthy and safe learning environment.
