St Anthony's Girls' Catholic Academy
St. Anthony's is an Outstanding Roman Catholic Academy for girls aged 11-18, within the Mercy tradition. It was established in 1904 and has been delivering high quality education for young women for over a century. St. Anthony's was judged Outstanding by OFSTED in March 2013.
We became an Academy in April 2012 and are looking forward to the completion of a number of new building projects 2013 to further redevelop the school site, enhancing our listed buildings and redeveloping a number of teaching areas.
The school has Specialist Technology status and Language status and is a member of the S.S.A.T (Specialist Schools and Academies Trust) Leading Edge Partnerships. It is an active member, too, of Hexham and Newcastle R.C. Partnership. The Academy provides an extensive range of extra curricular activities and educational visits.
Now that we are in autumn everyone is looking for things to do with the kids to celebrate this lovely colourful season. Here we have some great ideas, and they don't all involve being cooped up indoors! Get out and enjoy the cooler, fresh air and the crunchy leaves under foot - you can always return home afterwards for a hot chocolate and a snuggle
