Pastoral Care

At St. Francis College, we are passionate about the wellbeing of our pupils. Through our wellbeing committees, we fundamentally believe in the power of pupil voice. Our school council led by the sixth-form and student council with representatives from year seven to year 11 are fundamental in the design and implementation of new pastoral initiatives. In February we were successful in achieving a nationally recognised award, The Wellbeing Award for Schools; .

The girls in our care are nurtured to their full potential so that they discover who they are, what their strengths might be and how they can contribute to society without feeling they have to conform to a stereotype. They are well rounded individuals with self confidence and compassionate.
