Our School

Welcome to St Francis Catholic and Church of England Primary Academy, as Principal appointed to the Academy, it is a privilege to give you an insight into the fantastic experiences and adventures that our children will encounter during their time with us.

Our Academy is proud to be a member of the Portsmouth and Winchester Diocesan Academies Trust.

We have a sister school on the Isle of Wight; St Blasius Primary Academy, Shankiln, and three other schools on the mainland, with whom we work in close partnership.

We are a happy and continually improving community with increased ambition.

We aim to create strong, positive relationships and partnerships with every member of our community.

Staff and Governors work together to welcome and support both parents and children during the time that they are members of our school family. 

Our ethos is centred around our Core Values which are:   Love Courage Friendship  

These Christian Values were chosen by our children and they should be at the forefront of every decision and action we take.

Our experienced, effective and hardworking staff strive to create an exciting environment that will inspire, motivate and encourage our children throughout their learning journey with us.

We have a fantastic building, which includes classrooms and corridors designed to make the most of the beautiful views and natural light from almost every window.

Our school is sited next to National Trust Land and opposite Ventnor Downs, the highest point on the Isle of Wight.

 We would like to show you around our school very much and answer questions you may have.

We would be delighted if your child could join us.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions or comments to make about our school.
