    Why St Francis?

    "As parents we’ve been so impressed with how the whole school community has welcomed us – from the teachers providing support and encouragement to our children, to the parents reaching out to welcome us and to the children themselves for being so friendly (I think our children have attended 4 parties – with more on the way). It’s a real testament to the school community!"

    "My daughter is absolutely thriving in Reception and I think the change from Care Club to Pre-School for Reception wrap around care is a fantastic idea and offers a much more gentle start and end to the day!"

    "It has been quite sometime since I was invited to share his English work. I have to say I was quite blown away by what he had produced. The metaphors used were mature and thoughtful. I felt it was an exceptional piece of work. I am sure you are used to reading his quality of work, however, having not seen his creative writing for some time I was very impressed by his diction."
