We are a thriving, one and a half form entry primary school situated in the North Kensington, in the Diocese of Westminster. We have strong links with the Parish of St Francis of Assisi.
At St Francis of Assisi we aim to develop and encourage each individual child to reach their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. We aim to do this within an atmosphere of love, trust and respect in partnership with you, the parent.
St Francis of Assisi is a happy, forward-looking school with a history of success. Within a caring environment, based on the recognition of the dignity and worth of each child, high standards are expected. Social, emotional and spiritual development is emphasised and fostered along with the pursuit of academic excellence.

The ideal candidate will be expected to uphold the Christian ethos of the School, to contribute to the further development of the Christian community and, by example to help children live out the gospel values.
