Pastoral Care

At St. Francis College, we are passionate about the well-being 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 Y7 to Y11 is fundamental in the design and implementation of new Pastoral initiatives. In February we were successful in achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools; a nationally recognised award.

University Places

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

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 might contribute to society without feeling they have to conform to a stereotype. They are well-rounded individuals with self-confidence, not arrogance and compassionate without a sense of entitlement.
