National 2015 Speaker’s School Council Award

St Francis de Sales School has won the prestigious National 2015 Speaker’s School Council Award . The judges were really impressed by Intergenerational Ladies and Gents do Lunch and have congratulated all our students who were involved with the delivery of this excellent project.


To celebrate this success we are delighted to say  six students  involved in the project will attend a unique celebration event at the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 24 February 2015.


The day will begin with a tour of the Palace of Westminster followed by lunch. As part of this year’s event, winning schools are invited to join a celebration ceremony at the new Parliamentary Education Centre site. We will be burying a time capsule, in which we would like to include our students’ ideas of democracy. 


We will then be hosted in the Speaker’s apartment for a presentation event hosted by the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt. Hon John Bercow MP, where St Francis de Sales School council will receive our award.


The hardest part is choosing the six students who will attend but in any event we will be celebrating this amazing achievement with all our school council. Mr Lane our Head teachers said" At St Francis de Sales School we do so much with our children to help them experience opportunities to enhance their understanding of our British values. The school council richly deserve this prestigious
