Our School 

 
St. Francis' Catholic Primary School is a well established and popular school serving the parishes of St Francis', Nailsea and The Immaculate Conception, Clevedon. The school opened in 1979 celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 2004. We aim to provide a high standard of education for all our children, nurturing their growth and development and helping each child achieve the best they can. 
 
The school is sited in a quiet residential area and enjoys a pleasing aspect. The low level, honey-coloured building is situated in pleasant green grounds that include a large variety of mature trees, a lovely playing field, a pergola, pond and wildlife area. There are two hard play areas for the children with additional climbing frames and play equipment. The building has been constructed around a central courtyard that is used as a plant growing area by pupils. It comprises an assembly hall, seven classrooms, an ICT suite, library, additional areas for practical activities and music and an outdoor learning area for Reception and Year 1 pupils.
