Frequently Asked Questions:

Which High School do children generally go to from your school?

There are two main high schools that our children go to. These are St. Bede's High School and St. Wilfrid's Academy. Children have also gone to Darwen Vale, Witton Park and Walton-le-Dale. 

Are you a feeder school for St. Bede's high school?

St. Bede's is one of of the main high schools our children go to. I met with the headteacher of St. Bede's and he explained that he has never known a baptised catholic child not to be admitted to St. Bede's. This means a child at St. Paul's, Feniscowles Primary or here at St. Francis have equal footing to St.Bede's if they are baptised catholic.
