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

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.
