Welcome to St. Francis’ Catholic Primary School, we are a happy school that holds Christ at the centre of all we do. We are proud to be located in the heart of Stratford near the Olympic Park.

We have high expectations and aspirations for all our children. We are deeply committed to the partnership between home, school and the parish so that we are working together for our children’s success. As a school staff, we have a shared vision that “together we achieve excellence in our education, explore our special gifts, and love and follow Jesus.”
