About the employer

Our distinct Christian ethos underpins every aspect of Academy life at St Francis of Assisi. It is an ethos which is felt, lived and experienced by all. The everyday life of our Academy is firmly rooted in five unique key values, based on the Gospel message which provides hope for all. Students and staff are encouraged to put these values of respect, care, compassion, peace and reconciliation into action on a daily basis – in their words, attitudes and actions, as well as in the classroom corridor and community. Collective worship is at the heart of daily life in the Academy. Students engage in daily acts of worship and prayer, in form time and during year group assemblies. As noted by Ofsted inspectors, who found the effectiveness of the provision for Collective Worship at the Academy to be outstanding, we involve as many of the community as possible in the planning and presenting of worship. Our beautiful Chapel offers students and staff the opportunity to take time out for a moment of reflection, prayer and quiet time. All students have the opportunity to celebrate liturgical events as well as getting involved with a number of local, national and global charities.
