About St Anthony's School for Boys
St. Anthony’s is an academic IAPS preparatory school for boys between the ages of 4 and 13. It is Roman Catholic but welcomes boys of other faiths. The majority of boys transfer to leading Independent schools.
St. Anthony’s school was founded by Richard Patton during the Victorian period in Eastbourne. It moved to its Hampstead location in 1952 and has been managed by the Alpha Plus Group since 2009.
Ethos and values
The school has a family atmosphere, relaxed and unstuffy, but with a rigorous approach to learning. However, it is not a ‘hot house’ and great care is taken to ensure that pupils feel happy and at ease in the school environment. St. Anthony’s retains its cherished emphases on individuality and creativity. Pupils may be performing Shakespeare one day and making their own avant garde films the next. Academic success is achieved within an educational framework that places a strong emphasis on enjoyment of learning and on personal development.
The pastoral care at St. Anthony’s is at the very centre of what we do, whether it be displaying good sense, compassion and kindness towards each other, or the supporting of our boys through both the successes and challenges they will face in life. We value the warmth of relationships between staff and students, and the kind and respectful environment that has been so carefully cultivated over the years at St. Anthony’s. All staff are know by their first names.
