St Anne’s Catholic Primary School

6 Durham Street, London SE11 5JA


We are a two form entry Catholic primary school with a nursery, located in Vauxhall near the Oval Cricket Ground, just south of the Thames.

Our school is centred on Christ and his teachings of love, peace and justice, our aim being to let the light of Christ shine through and from every child and within our school.

‘St Anne’s is a warm and welcoming school with an exceptional Catholic ethos. Pupils flourish in its supportive and inclusive atmosphere… Pupils are happy and show exemplary behaviour in lessons and around the school.’ One of our pupils described St Anne’s as ‘a happy place – like rainbows and sunshine’ (S48 Diocesan Inspection Report – Sept 2016).

Pupils are engaged and focused on their learning. They are confident, and approach lessons with commitment and enthusiasm. They learn in a calm, friendly atmosphere. The school is a positive and welcoming place, where staff and pupils demonstrate respect for each other. Staff are proud to work at the school (Ofsted – May 2018).

All staff have the highest expectations of every child in every area – the children’s learning, their attitude, their behaviour and the presentation of themselves and their work. The children are taught to be respectful to all adults as well as their peers, to be resilient when things go wrong and to reflect on and take responsibility for their actions. These values and skills are critical for later life and thus need to be learnt and embedded when young.

The focus in all lessons is the quality of learning for every pupil to ensure that progress in learning is maximised at all times. The atmosphere in the school is calm and caring, yet happy and energised.

You will be able to find all of the key information about the school on the school website.
