St Anne's is a Catholic school which seeks to live out the values of Jesus Christ.
We promote these values by our words and deeds, and Catholic doctrine and practice therefore permeates every aspect of the school's activity. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God (Gen 1:27). Our curriculum is designed to enable every pupil to discern their vocation and to be well-equipped to follow it as active citizens in service to the world. Catholic Religious Education is the "core of the core curriculum" (Pope St John Paul II) and the foundation of the entire educational process. We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and a strong pastoral support. We incorporate democratic principles, value the rule of law, support individual liberty and foster a community in which different faiths and beliefs are respected.
We are delighted to announce the result of our Section 48 R.E. Ofsted inspection (July '15), St Anne's has been awarded Outstanding status for it's provision of Catholic Education.
Here are a few quote's from the inspectors:
"The well-thought-out curriculum offers the pupils and staff excellent opportunities to ensure that progress in religious education is excellent."
"...pupils make excellent progress to achieve outstandingly well in religious education. They are enthusiastic learners because of inspiring and engaging teaching."
"The headteacher and her team of staff have created an oasis for our Catholic families where children flourish away from the external, busy, urban area. The provision is outstanding."
The Year 5 & 6 Debating Club met on Friday to debate the motion:
'This House believes that cars should be banned from Central London'
Thank you to everyone who attended and to our speakers. The motion was defeated although good arguments were made which had been well researched by the speakers arguing for a ban on cars.
String (Instrument) Club
Children in year 3 all have an opportunity to learn a string instrument. They are working towards performing for the school and parents later on in the year. We are very fortunate to have wonderful tutors from THAMES to help us!

We look forward to inviting you to different activities, workshops, assemblies and more throughout the year. Below is the shortened prayer for the Year of Mercy:
Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy;
you who live and reign with the Father and Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
