Belmont Boys becomes St Francis College

The name change will reflect the school’s connection to the Belmont Parish and the Church of St Francis of Assisi, and also helps to distinguish it from Belmont Secondary School (formerly Belmont Junior Secondary).

The Christian brothers originally opened the school in 1923 under the name Belmont Boys Intermediate. It has a rich history and its alumni include the late Archbishop Anthony Pantin and his brothers, Bishop of St Georges, Grenada Clyde Harvey, calypsonian David Rudder, retired judge Melvin Beard, politician Fitzgerald Hinds, former Port of Spain mayor Louis Lee Sing and current Mayor Joel Martinez and athlete Jehue Gordon.
