S. Anselm's

A full boarding and day school for boys and girls from Nursery to 16

Old Anselmians

Welcome Old Anselmians

Since 1888 there has been a long tradition of continuing contact between the school and Old Anselmians.

The family atmosphere and strong boarding tradition lead to pupils making friends for life. One of our greatest achievements is the happy memories that many of you have of your time at the school.

As we welcome increasing numbers of sons and daughters of OAs to the school the strong family tradition continues.

What Can I Do?

We welcome your support and involvement in whatever capacity. We always welcome visitors who can share their skills with our pupils. If you would like to come in to the school and tell the present students about yourself, an adventure you have undertaken or your job, please do get in touch with the school.
