St Anthony’s School for Girls is a new independent Catholic school that opened in September 2016, located in Ivy House, on North End Road, NW11. It is the sister school to the highly successful St. Anthony’s School for Boys in Hampstead.
St. Anthony’s School for Girls teaches pupils in a Catholic environment, and is inclusive and open to other faiths. The new school is a two – form entry school, which educates girls from age 4 – 11. Classes in Reception and Year 3 opens in September 2016 and growth will be organic after that, with Year 1 and Year 4 opening in September 2017 and so on. The maximum roll is 280.
The happiness and welfare of our students is of utmost importance to us at St. Anthony’s School for Girls. In order to achieve their full potential, we ensure the girls are happy and comfortable in every aspect of their school life; pastoral and academic.
Each member of our staff takes responsibility for the pastoral well-being of the children and are supported in their role by our Head of Pastoral Care, Fiorella. We teach our girls to be kind to one another and to be respectful of themselves and others.
As a Catholic school, we teach tolerance and respect for the beliefs of others and celebrate key festivities from world faiths. Through our PSHE curriculum, the girls explore the meaning and practice of respecting equality and diversity.
St. Anthony’s Girls’ aims to mirror the success of St. Anthony’s Boys, Hampstead which is currently oversubscribed and has excellent exit results year on year. As their sister school, we share in the educational quality and ethos currently experienced by the boys. The girls will benefit from single sex education alongside the advantages that co-educational activities can offer. As we grow, the schools will foster close links through sharing sporting events, assemblies and reception class ‘play dates’.
