Welcome to St Anselm's College


St. Anselm’s College is the Roman Catholic Grammar School for Boys in Wirral. We are a high performing Academy which enables us to focus upon our strategic priorities whilst retaining our Catholic ethos and grammar school identity.

In 2013 Ofsted reported that “students make good progress. The quality of teaching is good and some is outstanding. Students' attitudes to learning are very positive, they are ambitious to succeed and are strong ambassadors for the College. The College's approach to ensuring students' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. Consequently, the College is a safe, proud, harmonious community where students treat each other, adults and visitors with respect and courtesy." Parents, students and staff refer to the College as a “family” and this is reflected in all aspects of College life. Students achieve an average 9 - 10 grades A*-C at GCSE and 55% grades A*-B and 100% A-E at A level with 95% of Year 13 Leavers progressing to university.

Our vision is to educate a generation of confident Catholic, Christian leaders equipped with the attributes and qualifications required to represent our values in modern society and prepared for rewarding and productive lives. In March 2014 the inspector from the Diocese of Shrewsbury described St. Anselm’s as “outcomes for pupils, the provision for Catholic Education, leadership and management in the development of the Catholic life of the College are all confirmed by this inspection as outstanding.” Our students are active in supporting the Christian Brothers’ Mission in Sierra Leone, West Africa and our 6th Form Immersion group visited our twin school, St. Francis, Makeni, in 2014 and a new group will return there in February 2015. Students regularly support local adults with learning difficulties in the Friday Club and assist at Homeless Missions and in Special Schools.

At St. Anselm’s we seek to educate the whole person so we provide excellent opportunities in sport, music, the arts, technology and leadership development, including in the 6th Form. The new 6th Form Centre, located in “Outwood”, the former Christian Brothers’ house adjacent to the College site, opened in 2013. This wonderful building has been lovingly restored, making the most of a wealth of original architectural features, whilst at the same time converting it for use as a place for education in the 21st century, complete with state of the art technology.
