St Anselm's Catholic School, Canterbury

St Anselm's is a Catholic School for students of all abilities, and was designated as a Specialist Science College in September 2004. St Anselm's serves the people of the Canterbury Deanery, including the towns of Ashford, Faversham, Whitstable, Herne Bay and Canterbury. Students from other areas are also most welcome.


The School's Mission is to promote the Catholic learning community based on the Gospel values of Love, Hope, Charity, Justice and Peace. Pupils are able to achieve their full potential academically, spiritually and socially with the committed support of staff, parents and governors. The school promotes equal opportunities and the serving of the wider community.


St Anselm's seeks to ensure that academic potential is fulfilled by valuing the work of all students. There is a consistent focus on securing outstanding teaching and learning in the school, with appropriate pace and challenge in all lessons and excellent behaviour. Students' progress is regularly measured, and appropriate additional help and guidance is given where it is needed. Students are placed in teaching groups most suited to their ability, and these teaching groups are regularly reviewed. Success is celebrated and students are rewarded in many ways for their efforts. This is truly a comprehensive school.
