At St. Anthony’s School our girls have access to a curriculum which features a similar breadth and balance of both core and non-core subjects. Ensuring this important equilibrium helps to better equip pupils with a broad variety of skills to be a lifelong learner: a well-rounded, happy and confident child. Exploring a pupil’s natural gifts in addition to covering the core subjects such as English, mathematics and science encourages individual learning, motivating each child to continue with that learning throughout their life – a key skill.
As sister school to St. Anthony’s Boys, our girls benefit from single sex education alongside the advantages that co-educational activities can offer. The schools foster close links through sharing sporting events, assemblies and reception class ‘play dates’.
Alpha Plus Group owns and operates nineteen first-class independent schools, nurseries and sixth form colleges throughout the UK. As part of the Alpha Plus Group, we deliver a ‘Gold Standard’ of education and draw on a wealth of experience from the group; building on the success of the existing prep and girls’ schools such as Wetherby and Pembridge Hall.
Our curriculum combines traditional methods with current pedagogical research and advances in technology. Our individualised learning programme will prepare the girls for entry into the finest senior schools, matching the success of St. Anthony’s Boys.
