When you visit St Francis’ College you will be struck by its warm and welcoming community where the staff are committed and dedicated to the well-being and intellectual development of all the girls here.
All aspects of College life are informed by Christian principles and we welcome families of all faiths and none. The breadth and depth of opportunity, and the rich curriculum here, offer girls an excellent preparation for the global community which will be an integral part of their adult lives.
As the world opens up, so too does the opportunity for women to take up high profile positions in business and politics. We provide an extensive range of opportunities for the girls from overseas trips to far flung places such as India, Uganda, and Iceland to archaeology club, building of a 3D printer, links with industry and academia.
It is important for our pupils to practise and prepare for leadership, to speak openly and to compete publicly whether it is for high profile prefect roles, debating, or the school councils! Staff at the College allow girls the chance to develop these skills and be prepared for that future. As one pupil commented “The staff here are on the journey with you”. You will find that we are a unified community, from Prep to Sixth form, with one purpose - to prioritise the opportunities for and the development of our girls.
I hope you find the website a useful introduction to the College but it is only when you visit us and meet the girls that you will truly appreciate its qualities.
