'Learning to live by faith and to be known by love'


The children of St Anne's are known for their smiles, their generosity and their passion for learning!  We are a vibrant, happy, forward-looking school in the heart of Caversham for children of any faith and no faith, where every pupil is scaffolded to aim for the stars.  Here, we believe that children learn best when they feel safe, are loved and are challenged.  As a result, teachers are committed to providing outstanding pastoral care alongside the highest quality, engaging learning experiences.  

As recognised in our 2019 Ofsted report,

The school is a small but close-knit community. There is a strong sense of family values. Relationships between staff and pupils are warm and caring. The school is highly inclusive. Pupils with all different types of need are welcomed and feel part of the school community .... At the heart of this is a strong, shared commitment to every child’s success, underpinned by the school’s ethos...' 

Currently, we have 185 children across 7 year groups.    We also have a 21 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 8.40am and finishes at 3.25pm We do also have a super Before and After School Club, run by school staff which opens at 8.00 and ends at 18.00.

Please do contact the school office for a tour on 01189375537 or contact via email on admin@st-annes.reading.sch.uk and we would love to show you round!

    Change to Reception Finishing time
    Re: change to the length of the school day for Reception children Dear parents and carers, I am writing to inform you of a change to the length of the school day for Reception children here at St Anne's. • Reception class will no longer finish at 3.15p.m. Instead, they will finish at 3.25pm in line with the rest of the school. This change will be implemented from Monday 9 October 2023. We believe that this change will be beneficial to the school community, and will have a positive effect on your child’s education. Reception will now finish at the same time as the other children supporting parents and will enjoy a further 10 minutes of teaching time. I appreciate that the change may affect you in terms of childcare or working arrangements, and you may have questions related to your child’s education. For this reason, I would like to invite you to share any feedback that you have by sending it to head@st-annes.reading.sch.uk Yours sincerely, Sarah Bernto
