Welcome from the Chair of Governors

The Governing Body are committed to providing the best possible quality teachers, support staff and facilities available for the provision of education of all students attending the Academy of St Francis of Assisi

Whilst student progress and development is our main priority, their safety and welfare is also of paramount importance.  Governors will ensure that the appropriate systems are in place which will provide all students with a safe and secure learning environment.

The Academy is dedicated, through our excellent staff, to the creation of a challenging personalised environment which encourages growth and development towards independence and preparation for further education and employment.  This will be undertaken within the context of our commitment to our Christian faith and Gospel values.

We are also committed to supporting the wider community and welcome the opportunity for joint enterprises with local groups.

Our role is to provide a framework of leadership and oversight over the running of the Academy, and to monitor and review the work of the Academy management.
