Welcome to St Anthony's Catholic Primary School!
We are a friendly, small (1 form entry), Catholic school set in beautiful, spacious grounds.
We have delightful pupils, supportive parents and an excellent relationship with our local Catholic church - St Margaret Mary in Park Gate, which is led by Father Ansel D'Mello. Our school is full of laughter and fun with exciting learning opportunities awaiting the children who join us.
At St Anthony’s we are passionate about encouraging our children to be the most awesome version of themselves. This means we have high academic standards (we are proud of our most recent Key Stage 2 SATs results) but we are also committed to the education of the whole child. Intrinsic to this is our wide and varied curriculum that includes a strong emphasis on Outdoor Learning. We love taking learning outside in our ‘Forest School’ or ‘Farm School’ areas as it has tangible benefits for the health and wellbeing of our children.
Our ambition is for our children to be kind leaders of the future, who lead by example. With a strong sense of Catholic values such as love and stewardship, we hope our pupils will grow into young people and adults who will make a positive difference in society.
We develop these skills through our caring approach to child-centred learning, by filling our curriculum with engaging themes that stretch and challenge across a full range of subjects and by providing exciting experiences that children might not otherwise have the chance to do, such as horse-riding in Year 3. We want our children to love learning and make memories, balanced with academic achievement so that they have the best foothold in life to follow their dreams.
With best wishes,
Mrs Katrina Straker
