Celebration of our pupils work
St. Anne's School, Alderney - Evie C
Our wonderful school is nestled on the small island of Alderney within the Channel Islands. Over 130 children attend St. Anne’s. We are the only school on this beautiful island.
Ways we are so unique:
Every week in the summer months, classes get kitted up in their own individual wetsuits, swimsuits and sea shoes and stroll down to the nearest seaside (Braye Beach) for a swim lesson. At high tide we generally practise our entries into the water and at low tide our swimming strokes and/or confidence in the water. The water is occasionally cold but most of the time refreshing!
St. Annes is a ‘through’ school accommodating children from the age of three (preschool) to the age of 16 (year 11) and the additional year 12 for children who cannot go to Guernsey.
From some of our classroom windows, we have a sea view overlooking Braye Beach, the harbour and the famous breakwater. On the other side of the main school building, we have views of traditional houses and their gorgeous flowers.
Local builders have just built us a new phenomenal playground from the money raised by the PTA (Parent Teacher Association). It has been equipped with a climbing frame and slide, spider frame and some exercise equipment. It will be opened sometime this summer term.
Here at St. Anne’s we are blessed to have so many amazing rooms. Just a few to name are a large library crammed with books for all ages; an ICT room full of monitors and computers, a large, spotless hall where we eat our packed lunch, on the rare occasion do PE and were most of the special events are held and classrooms with enough room for all the children. Most of the classes are mixed as in year 1 and year 2 are put together and so forth but Reception, year 5 and year 6 are classes in themselves.
