About our school

St Anne’s is a highly successful school with a strong moral purpose: to work together to strive to be the best that we can be and to live life to the full. Our Catholic ethos, girls’ school status at Key Stages 3 and 4 and our mixed Sixth Form College make us hard to beat as the best place to educate the region’s girls from 11 to 18 and boys 16 to 18.

GCSE results regularly place St Anne’s in the top 10% of schools nationally. Our A Level results are similarly impressive making St Anne’s one of the most successful 6th Form Colleges in the Southampton, Portsmouth and Hampshire area.

The achievements of our girls (and boys at sixth form) are top class and we are convinced that the distinctive experience St Anne’s offers, supports and challenges students to achieve even more than they thought was possible. 

St Anne's was judged to be Outstanding for its second inspection in a row in September 2022. Inspectors highlighted our diversity but also the way we have kept true to our values. They passed on the gratitude of parents, and noted how well pupils both achieve and behave. You can read the full report here.

We are committed to live the special gift of Union passed on to us by the sisters and the wider LSU community so that we may with joy:

Grow each day

in living the gospel, committed to reconciliation, integrity and justice.

Empower each other

to live life to the full, embodying God’s love in the world.
