In the 2018 New Year Honours, Frances was appointed a Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit recognising her lifetime of contribution in education and technology. In 2017 Frances received the NZ Flying Kiwi Award, inducted into the New Zealand Hi-Tech Hall of Fame and also named one of the top 3 NZ Innovators of the Year at the NZer of the Year awards. In 2016 Frances was named one of the top 50 EdTech Educators in the World by EdTech International, and was also awarded a Sir Peter Blake Leader Award. In 2015 Frances was awarded the Westpac New Zealand Woman of Influence (Innovation) and the Next New Zealand Woman of the Year (Education).
