As an Artsmark Gold school, we offer many opportunities to excel within the areas of music, drama, art and sport. St. Francis’ College has a strong reputation for high standards within these areas. Our girls’ lives are greatly enriched by competing in a wide range of sports.

Pastoral Care

The care and wellbeing of every girl is looked after throughout their time at St. Francis, with a dedicated Form Tutor overseeing their development.  Each girl is a member of one of four vertical houses, with the older girls helping to mentor and look out for the younger ones.  We strive to ensure that all our girls receive the personal attention they deserve.
