Belmont Boys’ Secondary RC School located on 34A Belmont Circular Road will be officially renamed St Francis Boys’ College, effective September 2017, the Catholic Education Board of Management has stated.

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

The Christian Brothers opened the RC 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 Clyde Harvey, David Rudder, retired Justice Melvin Beard, Minister Fitzgerald Hinds, former Port of Spain Mayor Louis Lee Sing and current Mayor Joel Martinez and athlete Jehue Gordon.
