Francis Douglas Memorial College


Our school is committed to creating a strong academic purpose and will do everything to ensure that the academic, co-curricular and social aspects of school, hostel and homestay are as rewarding as possible. We have very high expectations for all of our students, and with small class sizes we monitor progress very closely. In addition to regular classes, all boarding students have two hours of supervised homework each night. Parents receive four reports per year.

We welcome international students as part of our school community and offer a caring and friendly atmosphere. The presence of international students at the college enriches the school community and we value this cultural diversity. Students have the opportunity to engage in a wide range of extra-curricular activities including music, sport, drama and an excellent outdoors programme.
