WHAT MAKES
ST. ANNE’S UNIQUE?

SINCE 1969
THE HISTORY OF ST. ANNE’S SCHOOL?

St. Anne’s School was established in 1969 by Miss Margaret Jean Raines and is a co-educational independent school which provides a British education for children aged one to eighteen in Madrid. The school is located in Avenida Alfonso XIII, which is in Chamartín, one of the most attractive and prestigious residential areas of Madrid and is easily accessible from most of the city.

ST. ANNE’S SCHOOL
THE BRITISH EDUCATION SYSTEM

St. Anne’s School provides a broad balanced curriculum based on the requirements of the British National Curriculum. The aim of this curriculum is to:

-Prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

-Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society.

 In addition, as is required in International Schools, full attention and respect is given to the learning of the Spanish Language and Literature, Spanish Social Studies, traditions and culture, which is the essential heritage of the vast majority of our pupils.

 St. Anne’s School uses methods of assessment associated with good practice in the United Kingdom, including Primary practice such as literacy and numeracy tests and teacher records of progress. Formal testing in the Secondary school includes IGCSE examinations and Cambridge English qualifications.

 All teaching staff at St. Anne’s are qualified British teachers and all are British trained, the majority having teaching experience in the United Kingdom.

 The management structure of the school follows the British model with a Principal, Head Teacher of Primary School, Head Teacher of Secondary school and subject and phase co-ordinators.

St. Anne’s School is a long established and founder member of the National Association of British Schools in Spain (NABSS) and is inspected by this body as well as by the Spanish Ministry of Education.

OUR VISION

Under the umbrella of a new and revitalised leadership, and together with a privileged teaching team, the present and future of St. Annes is now more exciting than ever.  Our vision is to become the most recognised British Catholic school in Spain.

We work every day to create a vibrant and challenging ecosystem, capable of generating transformative experiences in which our students can be nurtured and reach their full potential.

With our sights set on the future, we wanted to redesign this school to make it a dynamic and co-creative space, adapting to the needs of the different academic disciplines. In doing so, we want our pupils to discover and develop their passions, interests and strengths, with the hope of seeing them grow as individuals and to boost their full academic and formative potential.

We want our students to learn to think freely and find the confidence to become future leaders, always with a firm commitment to work and the humility to serve.

OUR VALUES

Our ethos, rooted in the philosophy of Catholic education, has guided us since our foundation. These values are at the heart of our work; of everything we do.

Our team aims to nurture the unique character of each student, from the earliest ages through to the final academic year, accompanying them through the different stages of their school life so that the student flourishes and becomes the best version of themselves. Through this virtuous circle, students thrive and enrich the group, while enriching themselves in the company of others.

Respect: we learn from our differences and foster mutual respect and social responsibility.

Generosity: we become sensitive to the needs of others and support each other’s well-being.

Balance: promoting the physical and emotional well-being of each of our students. 

Responsibility: cultivating a sense of responsibility and care for people and the world around us, as well as for ourselves, to ensure that our community and its environment thrive.

Integrity: to educate through sound principles and good judgement, inspiring in our students the courage to always do the right thing.

OUR PRAYER

God bless our school, let peace live here,
May the rooms be full of happiness
Let love be all around, love of one another, love of all people, and love of life and living.
Let us remember that, as many hands build a house, so many hearts build a school. Amen
