Mission Statement:
“We are a Catholic faith community
committed to quality learning.”

Kia ora and Welcome to St Francis Catholic School - Thames.

*****Our new school website is currently under construction*****

Check out our Facebook page for latest newsletters and what's been happening.


We sit proudly alongside our Parish on McKay Street in the center of Thames.

Inspired by St Francis' love of God and Creation, we provide a nurturing learning environment for each child; focusing on their spiritual, moral, academic, emotional, social and physical needs. Each day, children are challenged to develop and make the most of their unique gifts and talents.

We work in partnership families to ensure the best possible learning outcome for our children.

If you want to know more about our wonderful school, please phone, send and email or even better, pop in and see us

God bless

We are proud to be a Green Gold Enviro School! We operate a whole school team green approach to sustainability. We grow trees from saplings, operate a worm farm and composting. We look after our school environment and plant trees in our local community. We grow veggies and fruit for our local community. Together we make a difference and live the faith of St Francis.
