Discover S. Anselm’s for yourself

There is no substitute for visiting us in person to discover all that S. Anselm’s offers and to get a real flavour of the special atmosphere that characterises our school.   

We invite all families who are interested in S. Anselm’s to come and enjoy a personalised visit, either as part of one of our termly Open Days or on an alternative date/time convenient to you.  All visiting families are offered the opportunity to meet with either our Headteacher, Mr Frank Thompson, or Mrs Lisa Donnelly, Senior Deputy Head in charge of Pre-Prep.

For prospective day pupils, visits typically take 1.5 hours; for boarding pupils, it is nearer 2 hours as your visit will include a tour of the boarding house and a chance to meet one of our boarding house parents.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 global pandemic, visits will continue to be socially distanced and some of the information and events outlined may be subject to change.

For overseas families or those who prefer, we are also able to offer personalised virtual tours, which are conducted via live FaceTime.  We nevertheless strongly encourage all prospective families to subsequently visit us in person.

Whichever way you chose to visit us, our aim is to enable you to gain a detailed insight into our school and meet the people who contribute to making a S. Anselm’s education and school-life so special.  

Our admissions team is available daily to assist you, so if you are interested in visiting us, registering for an Open Event or enquiring about the availability of a space for your child(ren), please call us on 01629 812734 or email:
