The Friends of St Francis


About the Friends

As a parent/ guardian, grandparent, other family member, teacher, member of support staff, governor or other member of the school community, you are automatically considered to be a member of “The Friends of St Francis”.  “The Friends” operate as a PTA would do; operating under a Friends banner just enables more people to be involved.  “The Friends” are represented by a Committee who are elected at an AGM.  To find out more about past and future events and how you can be more involved with “The Friends” please read on or follow the links on the website for meeting minutes and more.
