About us

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on.

The children of St. Anthony's are pleasant, cheerful and well behaved; they have zest and character; indeed are usually a credit to themselves and their families. Most are enthusiastic, keen to learn and it is our job, as their teachers, to see that their hopes and aspirations are fulfilled.

The progress of every child is immensely important to us all, and we hope that our work as teachers will enable them to develop to their fullest potential. In St. Anthony's we look to create and establish the sort of environment in which pupils of all ages can feel content and comfortable.

In the same way, we seek to forge excellent relationships with parents so that the concept of partnership is seen as the way forward at all times.
