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. 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.
The views and opinions of the girls are taken through the School Council whose representatives meet to discuss key school issues. The School Council members discuss school life and opportunities outside of our school which would enable us to improve the lives of others.
Good behaviour is celebrated by teachers in class and certificates are awarded in an end of half- term assembly. The certificates celebrate pupils who have shown kindness and consideration in their actions and also those who have demonstrated key characteristics of effective learning such as perseverance and critical thinking.
Our PSHE curriculum develops understanding of a healthy body, a healthy mind and healthy relationships. Our school caterers, The Brookwood Partnership teach the girls about nutrition through the healthy choices available in their daily meals, cookery club and themed workshops such as British Food Week.
Our close proximity to Golders Hill Park enables the girls to take fresh air and exercise regularly throughout the school day. St. Anthony’s Girls also promotes healthy practices such as walking to school, of which more details can be found in our School Travel Plan.
