St. Francis’ College

Determination, Resilience, Empowerment, Appreciation and Motivation

Set in the midst of Letchworth Garden City, St. Francis’ College is a leading day and boarding school that has been providing a first-class education since 1923. The College is a warm and supportive community, every student is known and the relationships between adults and children are mutually respectful, yet friendly and purposeful. In short, everyone at St. Francis’ is an individual with something to offer and whose contribution is celebrated by all.

Small class sizes, excellent teaching, a pastoral programme that is embedded throughout the curriculum, a keen focus on student voice and a plethora of extra-curricular opportunities all enable students and staff to build up their relationships alongside achieving academic and co-curricular excellence. At St. Francis’, outstanding GCSE and A Level results, alongside 100% of students achieving a place at a university of their choice, are results which happen naturally. Despite outstanding academic results, the school is not a hot-house; it is a phenomenally successful educational community that enables extraordinary outcomes for its students.

St. Francis’ College’s aim is to provide a rigorous and stimulating educational experience, with a focus on close individual care, which equips students to thrive in an ever-changing global environment. It builds intellectually creative minds and seeks to instil the core values of determination, resilience, empowerment, appreciation and motivation, all in a secure environment where students feel confident enough to have a go, make mistakes and learn from them. Students leave St. Francis’ inspired to dream bigger and equipped to strive to achieve their dreams.
