Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to St. Anne’s, where we offer your daughter something truly unique in our local area: academic achievement combined with spiritual development. Our Catholic ethos pervades all aspects of school life, making St. Anne’s a focused, caring and happy community in which girls can flourish.

Our dedicated team of staff and governors work hard to maintain the high expectations and pastoral support that lead to the best possible standards. Committed to being an inclusive school, we nurture an ethos in which every girl is motivated to strive for success, whatever her level of ability.

We seek to raise aspirations, generate opportunities and promote a ‘can do’ attitude. Students are encouraged to develop independent learning skills that will benefit them when they progress to our thriving Sixth Form and if they go on to University.

The cultural diversity of our students enriches the life of St. Anne’s, while our common faith means that we enjoy a strong sense of community. Our girls are great ambassadors for the school – demonstrating outstanding behaviour, enthusiasm for their learning and caring attitudes to one another and the wider world. I warmly invite you to visit our school to be inspired by them, meet with staff and discover for yourself what St. Anne’s has to offer.
