Every member of our community deserves success


It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Headteacher of this unique, diverse and vibrant Academy.  At the Academy of St Francis of Assisi we pride ourselves on our strong vision of ‘Success for All’.  Every member of our community deserves success and it is our mission to ensure that everyone achieves it.

I feel deeply privileged to be the Headteacher of an Academy which has an absolute commitment to its Christian values of Pride, Ambition, Respect, Peace, Reconciliation and Happiness.  Here at our Academy you can feel the passion and energy that radiates from us as we commit to ensuring that this is a thriving and harmonious environment in which to learn.

We encourage all our learners to aim high to fulfil their dreams and our goal is for all our students to be well rounded, confident and respectful individuals.  Our community spirit is strong, we learn from and value each other.  We strive at all times to achieve ‘Success for All’.

Our Values





Peace & Reconciliation


Research tells us as many as two thirds of young people experience levels of exam stress.

This degree of stress has been further compounded by the Covid pandemic. Read @SatisEducation's column on supporting young people during #exams on page 24

Year 7 pupils are busy making a short video all about the transition experience moving from primary to senior school. They shared their biggest and worries how they overcame them. #transition #theassisiway #ambition #pride

Y8s had a brilliant day out at Liverpool’s International Slavery Museum where they heard the untold stories of enslaved people and learnt about historical and contemporary slavery #respect #pride #ambition #theassisiway #history

Reminder that this Wednesday is Year 7 parents evening. Come along to meet your child’s teachers and hear about their progress this year #pride #ambition #theassisiway

Check out this video from @milk_education who joined us for our Assisi Respects Day and filmed Hermen and Alyx talking on the importance of respecting ourselves and our futures.

Thanks guys!
