Why choose St Francis?

Our friendly, seaside school is nestled in an area of outstanding beauty and offers excellent facilities and a dynamic team.

So what sets us apart?

We see the whole child in our care. We notice the unique talents and gifts they bring. Our staff  strive to nurture and develop the smallest flicker of potential, to guide the children to a fulfilled and successful future.

As a parent, you’ll want your child to make a strong start to their education, to feel included and valued, to build towards having choices in life and finding their place within the world. At St Francis we share these thoughts.  We want to enrich the lives of the children entrusted to us, to inspire and motivate them to be the best they can be.

We are a Catholic and Church of England School, welcoming children of all faiths and of none, promoting tolerance and understanding. Moral and educational values walk hand in hand. Virtues like honesty, charity, trust, respect, diligence and consideration are  embedded in the fabric of our school.

St Francis has a long tradition of working alongside local people from our seaside community and it is important to us that we are outward-looking, to give the children a sense of mutual respect and understanding. Parents are very much included and welcomed into the school experience, helping to enrich the partnership between home and school for children and adults alike.

At St Francis we lead by example and set our standards high. We know that every child is precious and take seriously the responsibility we have to teach them well and help them aspire to more.

That is why we would like you to consider St Francis Primary School as you make your choice.

We would be delighted to show you around and we look forward to welcoming you.
