“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today”  

Welcome to our unique, diverse and vibrant academy. Whether you are a current or prospective parent or pupil, considering applying for a role in our school, or simply a more casual enquirer, we hope you can capture a sense of the academy and our determination to do the right things and support all our students to be the best that they can be. 

The Academy of St Francis of Assisi is a family, guided by Christian love and following in the footsteps of Christ. Our school is laying the foundations for pupils to flourish and ‘Live, love and learn together in the light of Christ’. We are inspired by the teachings of Christ and the example of St Francis who said, ‘Don’t change the world, change worlds.’ We strive for excellence, cherishing every child in our care as a unique thumbprint of God, enabling all to realise their full potential.  

Our school is a joint faith academy (Catholic and Church of England), although it welcomes students from a range of faiths. It is truly a unique place with a wonderfully diverse community. It is inclusive, and warmly welcomes children of all abilities, cultures, and backgrounds.  

We take inspiration from the words of St Francis, Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible’.

Peace & Reconciliation
