Franche is a true community school. We host a regular lunch club for older people, who come in and eat with our children; we run large scale community events, including a very popular bonfire and fireworks, a summer fair, and festive activities, together attended by thousands of people every year.
We regularly fundraise for community charities and distribute harvest and Christmas hampers, all to help instil in our children that they are part of a wider community.
We also host a wide range of clubs on our premises outside school hours, including martial arts, fitness, slimming and activity clubs.
We have strong links with our community neighbours, among them the local police service, who have a community base on our premises, and our local churches.
We are also very grateful for the support we receive from local businesses.
