Springhill Primary School
Springhill seeks to provide sound, effective, broad and balanced Catholic Primary education for our children in a well organised, well resourced, caring, disciplined, Christian and specifically Catholic school community.
We always endeavour to offer the best standard of education for each individual pupil, with full and equal opportunities for intellectual, social, physical and spiritual growth. We aim to respond to every child’s changing needs, equipping them with the skills to meet the demands and needs of a changing society, fostering and enhancing the partnership between school, home and parish, as well as bridging past traditions and future progress.
We will ensure that equality of opportunity permeates every aspect of school life. High standards of work and behaviour are expected of everyone. Individual efforts are praised and rewarded, and every child is encouraged to play a full role in a daily life that is a happy, challenging and rewarding experience.
St Anne’s Secondary School
St Anne’s was founded in 1904 by the La Sante Union sisters for the Christian education of girls. Over the last century it has grown and developed, always maining its aim – to communicate Christ to its pupils and to form them as mature persons who will value their Christian responsibilities in life.
St Anne’s is now a large comprehensive school of some 1100 girls. It has a very wide catchment area which extends beyond the city boundaries. St Anne’s admits boys to the Sixth Form to enable more students to benefit from an education which is based on Christian values and located in the heart of Southampton.
St Anne’s has a very good reputation for high standards in teaching and training young people and for excellence in academic attainment. It is fortunate in having highly qualified and dedicated teaching staff. Because of these factors there is a great demand for places and parents are happy to send their children very long distances, sometimes at great inconvenience, in order to receive what they consider to be the best education available to them. The school offers a wide curriculum to all pupils and its success rate in public examinations places it in the top 10% nationally.
The school is committed to encouraging links between home, school and the parishes. Parish priests and Ministers of Religion are welcome to come into school and the girls are encouraged to become involved in their own parish activities. There is a school Chaplain who co-ordinates school liturgies.
St George Catholic College
St George Catholic College provides Christian education for boys aged 11 to 16. The college is based in the north of Southampton and admits pupils from across the city.
