Senior Leadership Team

I am pleased to introduce the senior leadership team of St. Francis College. As a three-programme school

(PYP, MYP and DP), the ethos of the IB programmes permeates all aspects of school life, from the nature of our curriculum to the way we view our role in the community and in the world. Our senior staff (as well as many other teachers at St. Francis College) have additional roles with the IB that help promote the development of both our programme and the programmes of other IB schools around the world.
