Welcome to St Anne’s Catholic Primary School

We are a voluntary aided school in Caversham , Reading, serving the Catholic parish of Our Lady and St Anne, which is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

We base our work on the Gospel values of Love and Service and our Mission Statement makes the commitment to live, love and learn as children of God.  A child is a gift from God and the first and best teachers of any child are his or her own parents so we welcome the opportunity to work closely in partnership with the amazing community that we serve.  We are proud of our children and their achievements, our academic standards and the selfless commitment of our staff and of our Parent/Staff Association.

We currently have 197 children across 7 year groups.    We also have a 26 place Nursery.

Children come into our Reception class in the year that they are 5 and move up to secondary school at the end of Year 6, when they are 11.

Our school day starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.25pm.

If you would like to visit us, please contact the school office to make an appointment.



Mrs Sarah Bernto

Head of School St Anne’s
