At St Anne's we offer a wide and varied range of inclusive, enriching experiences which equip students with the knowledge and skills to understand more about how to play a positive and successful role within our society, both as a child and as an adult. Our intention is to provide students with a knowledge of their world, locally, nationally and globally and give them confidence to tackle many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up within this. We aim to provide our children with opportunities for them to learn about acting socially responsible, rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society. Student leadership opportunities, SACRED Days, a wide range of extra-curricular activities and enrichment opportunities all complement the knowledge-rich academic curriculum and nurture, develop & stretch students’ talents & interests as well as embed fundamental British values.
Our Catholic Community
We endeavour to give pupils and staff the opportunity to witness the teachings of Jesus. This is evident in the values of the Gospels such as compassion, justice, service and reconciliation in all aspects of school life, both in our Parish and community for example supporting Stockport foodbank, supporting the local community with Christmas Hampers and raising funds for CAFOD, and other charities, locally and gloabally. We want pupils and staff to work together, care, respect and accept all individuals in our school community and the society around us. Students have the opportunity to become Caritas Ambassadors, supporting the Diocese of Salford with raising awareness in our community of social justice.
Mental & Physical Well-being
Mental well-being and physical well-being includes student’ awareness of healthy eating and the participation of students in physical exercise and sport as well as music and team activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Anti-bullying initiatives, diversity awareness, relationships and sex education and the focus on the responsible use of technology and media ensure that students value their own identity and have the ability to make confident, well-informed decisions in the future as well as know where, when and how to seek advice.
Leadership development starts straightway in Y7 with form captains and then culminates in the prestigious roles of Head Boy, Head Girl and senior prefects in Year 11. In addition, pupils are able to become anti bullying ambassadors, student council members, literacy buddies and mental health first aiders. The skills developed help raise aspirations and prepare students for a smooth transition to the next stages of education, training & employment.
