Education of the Heart

Education of the Heart

St Francesca Cabrini herself established the school in London just over 110 years ago.  Francesca Cabrini was born in Sant’Angelo, Lombardy, Italy in 1850 and founded the order of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in 1880. 

The Missionary Sisters’ mission to ‘educate the heart’ of each child to reach their full potential and to support and help the poor and marginalised in society forms the strong foundation of the work we do at St Francesca Cabrini Catholic Primary School.  We believe this gives our school a distinctive character.

The school in London is one of the many worldwide institutions   established by the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  This ‘Cabrinian Global Family’ reaches out to many parts of our global community and has institutions such as schools, colleges and hospitals in Spain, U.S.A., Argentina, Australia and Italy.  This is alongside refugee and relief projects throughout the world and   missionary projects in Ethiopia and Swaziland.  The school is in the Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark.
