Learning at St. Anne's


St Anne's provides an engaging and rich curriculum that promotes independence and self-motivation. We aim to develop confident learners who explore the world around them and can reflect on their personal learning journey with insight and honesty.

Our staff work collegially to create learning opportunities that aim to instill global understandings that will stay with our students as they move into the world.

We foster resilience and persistence in an environment where the community plays an active daily role, helping to nurture the whole child and develop a strong sense of self. Students are encouraged to think critically, collaborate with staff to set personal learning goals and make ethical choices.
