    4th March 2017

    A group of twelve Year 13 students and four teachers recently returned from a life-changing immersion retreat to Sierra Leone.

However, this was the first visit to Sierra Leone since 2014, with visits for the previous three years cancelled due to the terrible Ebola outbreak. Read More

    King Henry Relays

    3rd February 2017

    On Wednesday 1st February, St Anselm's took part in the annual King Henry VIII Relay race for Cross-Country. We were looking to build on last year's position of 7th place and we took a very strong set of runners for both the A and B teams. Joe Wigfield (Year 12) continued his excellent form as he achieved the 3rd fastest lap of the whole competition, completing the 2.3 mile course in 11.37, a fantastic achievement. There were impressive performances by the other 5 members of the A squad, Arran Kearney (Year 11), Louis Johnston (Year 9), Jacob Brophy (Year 11), Ieuan Kearney (Year 11) and Tom Spence (Year 11).
