St Anne’s Catholic Primary School has been serving the Catholic community of Wrexham since 1967. The primary role of a Catholic school is to support the Catholic Church in promoting the Catholic faith amongst the local community.
We are very proud to be a Catholic School and a part of the Wrexham Diocese family of schools. Church schools are inclusive by nature, welcoming children and families of all faiths and none, while recognising that faith is something that shapes people’s lives. We are committed to celebrating the rich heritage of faith, language and culture in Wales and provide a natural point of community focus.
The religious objectives and activities of a Catholic School require the school to strive to model the values of the Gospel and to adhere in the substantive life choices to the teaching of the Catholic Church.
We have strong links with St Anne’s Parish Church, which is situated right next door to the school, and attend Mass regularly.
Catholic Life of the School
At St. Anne’s, we are a school of love and hope. We believe that a Catholic education develops the full potential of all young people, leading to their life-long activities being guided by the Spirit and presence of Christ, in the service of God and of others.
It is a unique journey through education as it puts all learning and teaching in a Catholic moral context ultimately both challenging and supporting young people to develop in mind, body and spirit. The role of a Catholic school is to help everyone in the school community to discover the true value and dignity of each and every human being.
The school focuses on the education of the whole child. It is centred on Gospel values and reflecting on the teaching of the Catholic Church. Hence, the formation of each person is regarded as being as important as the information which is transmitted through the teaching offered.
Parents are the first educators of their child in faith and a strong home-school link is fundamental in supporting the school in its mission . Together, we provide support for the faith community, helping to form a Christian conscience, and in addressing the increasingly secular influences of popular culture.
