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.
Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
