As a truly independent Preparatory School, without allegiance to a ‘parent’ senior school, we pride ourselves in treating every child as the unique individual they are. A S. Anselm’s education is designed to give your child the best possible preparation and grounding for success throughout their educational journey and to enable you and they to make the best choice of Senior School for their individual aspirations and ambitions.
We are immensely proud of our leavers’ achievements. Founded in 1888, S. Anselm’s has an enviable reputation as one of the country’s leading independent preparatory schools with many pupils achieving the high academic results needed to go on to study at some of the leading senior schools of the country. Such schools include Eton, Harrow and Winchester, Manchester Grammar, Oundle School, Uppingham, Shrewsbury, Malvern College, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, and Withington Girls School, as well as other independent day schools such as Birkdale School in Sheffield.
Every journey is as individual as each child, and our aim is to prepare children to achieve their personal potential, pursue their ambitions and support them and their families throughout the process.
