What the school says...
S. Anselm's is one of the country's leading prep schools. We provide a happy and thriving environment where children are encouraged to give their best and to flourish amidst traditional values.
We prepare children for their journey through life, equipping our boys and girls with the wisdom and skills to succeed. We look to do so in a fun and engaging way, whilst encouraging good manners and humanity. The safe, homely and family environment in stunning Derbyshire countryside lends itself to superb opportunities for the strong boarding community. They delight in the strength and breadth of the activities programme, whilst being supported emotionally and academically by the school's dedicated pastoral team. Despite having no academic entry requirements, at 13 more than half our pupils win a scholarship which is a tribute to the quality of the teaching at the school and the small average class sizes. We would love to meet you and encourage you to come and see us in action. ...Read more

A tall man, by any standards, he does not belong to the pinstriped, lapel-tugging, bullfrog school of heads. He is a thinker, a man of intelligence and vision, of great kindness, strong-minded and determined, and not easily swayed. Above all, he is dedicated to the welfare of the pupils. He does not like being pushed about by autocracy, but will listen for hours to children’s worries and concerns. Some parents have complained that he is...
