St Anselm's Catholic
St Anselm's Catholic School is rated as a 'Good' academy (Ofsted March 2017). It is a Catholic academy for students of all abilities, 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 Academy's mission is to promote the development of all its students so that they are able to achieve their full potential academically, spiritually and socially.
St Anselm's seek 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 Academy, 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 different ways for their efforts. This is truly a comprehensive academy.
Students are encouraged to develop spiritually by their membership of a academy community founded on the Gospel Values of Hope, Charity, Justice and Peace. The Academy places great value on the quality of relationships, on mutual respect, tolerance and under-standing and on reconciliation if difficulties arise. There are many opportunities for students to become involved in the liturgical life of the academy through daily worship, Masses,services and retreats. The Academy also emphasises to students that spiritual fulfillment involves being the best that you can be, leaving St Anselm's with the ability and preparedness to lead good, fulfilled adult lives with a commitment to making a positive contribution to the global community.
