Our Community, Ethos and Values
Our School Motto
‘To know, love and serve God’
At St Anne’s we aim to meet people where they are on their faith journey and accompany and guide them on their way to achieving their full potential. We strive to create a Catholic community which shares common beliefs and where, following Christ’s example, we recognise the unique and equal value of each member. Our commitment to each person’s growth is reflected in the quality of our school’s provision which seeks to maintain the highest possible standards of achievement and behaviour.
Our School Mission Statement
At St Anne’s we strive to be an outstanding Catholic school in all we do, serving the community by working to improve the life chances of all students.
We endeavour to be a community of Service and Compassion. Following Christ’s example of love, putting good works into action now so as to shape a better future.
We are a community of Ambition and Determination committed to achieving our best personally, socially and academically as a school.
We are a community of Respect and Equality where our differences are recognised and celebrated and all are included.
It is important to us as a Catholic school, that each child is allowed to flourish, and fulfil their potential recognising that we are all made in the image of God. It is our goal that all of our pupils’ unique abilities are supported, encouraged and developed here at St Anne’s.
Finally, we are a community of faith and worship, encouraging our pupils to become true disciples, who will leave St Anne’s knowing, loving and serving God and each other.
