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.
