About St. Francis' College

Set in the midst of Letchworth Garden City , St Francis' College has been providing a first class education for girls for over 75 years, blending traditional values and a modern vision. 

This day and boarding school for girls aged 3-18 is a happy and thriving community providing a modern education based on Christian principles. Students receive individual care promoting their spiritual, moral, intellectual, creative and physical development. We recognise the unique qualities of each student and encourage social responsibility and respect for others.

Founded in 1933, the school is run by St Francis' College Trust, an educational charity, as a multi-denominational Christian community, ecumenical in outlook welcoming pupils of all faiths. The school provides day time weekday education for girls aged 3 - 18 and boarding facilities and care for older girls.

Small class sizes, individual attention and a supportive, caring environment help ensure that each and every girl enjoys their education and reaches their full potential, academically, socially and in a wide range of activities and extra-curricular pursuits.

St Francis’ College is a happy and inclusive school, where achievement in all areas is encouraged and celebrated.

The College has grown and developed in many ways over that time but the principles of the early founding Sisters remain at the heart of the ethos of the College today.
