An education at S. Anselm’s is an education for life. High standards in the classroom, excellent manners, decency and consideration for others all combine to give our pupils essential preparation for their future.
As a ‘stand-alone’ Preparatory School, we teach to a very high standard so that our pupils may move on to a school that most suits them, including some of the most prestigious schools in the country: Ampleforth, Cheltenham Ladies’ College, Downe House, Eton College, Giggleswick, Harrow, Malvern, Oakham, Oundle, Queen Margaret’s (York), Repton, Rugby, St Edward’s (Oxford), Sedbergh, Shrewsbury, Tudor Hall, Uppingham, Winchester, Wycombe Abbey and many others, not to mention S. Anselm’s College.
“There are a number of reasons we chose S. Anselm’s for our daughter. First, the focus on the needs of each individual child is quite outstanding and a testament to the quality of the teachers. Second, the excellent academic focus; especially on STEM subjects; is very well balanced against other aspects of a child’s development such as sport, team building and courtesy. You will struggle to find a more polite child than those who attend S Anselm’s! Third is the fact that S Anselm’s is a truly independent school, as opposed to being a feeder to an associated school. This opens a world of opportunity to send your child onward to a school that perfectly suits their requirements, be it academic, sporting, location, non-boarding etc., or indeed the excellent S. Anselm’s College. The world really is their oyster.”
Richard Lawson, Parent.
“It was an easy decision for us to choose to send our daughter to S. Anselm’s as we believe that the education is second to none in our area. We love that fact that sports lessons form part of the curriculum on a daily basis, as this ensures that our daughter has plenty of opportunity to be active and learn to be a team player.The small class sizes are a big factor for us too as students get plenty of individual support and it makes studying at the school feel like being part of a family environment while getting the best education available.”
Jemma Beagrie, Parent.
