Our School

St Francis is a happy and thriving community where we encourage all children to make the most of their time with us both academically, spiritually and socially. This is why our Mission Statement is Open Hearts – Open Minds.

We have experienced staff with much to offer. We are different to other schools. We are supported by the Catholic and Church of England Diocese. We have a full time librarian to foster a love of reading in all our children. We excel in sport - last year alone we were the Isle of Wight Champions in Girls’ football, hockey and athletics and have achieved the gold award for PE. We are proud of our Performing Arts with a full production annually. This is a professional production which is fully supported by the Ventnor community and builds confidence and pride for our children!

We have a brilliant new building, which includes great classrooms, a library in the heart of the school and landscaped outdoor areas to enhance learning.

I would like to show you around our school very much. Please ring and make an appointment with the school office.

We would be delighted if your child could join us.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions or comments about our school, or the website. I am always happy to help.

Kind regards
