St Anne's School History
Saint Anne's Catholic Primary School was opened in September 1970, with a total of 98 children on roll. There were 4 teaching staff along with the Head teacher.
Over the years, numbers have steadily increased. In the early 1990's a mobile unit was sited on our school playing field, which currently houses our Year 6 class. A period of growth in the school now sees us with a roll of over 210 school - aged pupils and 30 nursery children.
Over the summer holidays (August 2019) we created our new Early Years Unit and have moved our Year 6 children into a fantastic refurbished mobile classroom. In addition, our new staff and visitors car park has been created, which improves the security and safety of our site. In 2021, we saw the completion of our new front entrance, which has enhanced the security and safety at school for all of our pupils and staff.
In the Summer of 2022, we start the building of our new fixed classroom that will replace the mobile building- this is a very exciting time for our school, as by March 2023 we will have the correct amount of fixed classrooms for our pupils. This is a fantastic achievement.
Our school is completely self - contained with its own hall (which also doubles as a well equipped gymnasium), school kitchen, dining hall, nurture room, 7 classrooms, cloakroom areas, Early Years unit, offices and staff room.
The building is surrounded by two large playgrounds (one infant, one junior), a large playing field and grassed areas. EYFS & Year 1 have their own outdoor classrooms. Year 6 enjoys its own fenced outdoor teaching area next to the mobile unit and we have recently developed a fabulous 'Woodlands Outdoor School' that all children access.
Mrs Johnston is the third Head teacher of St Anne's, who succeeds Mrs Robinson and Mr Ward.
