In addition, school leavers engage in a School Leavers Programme and graduate to appropriate adult training services,at 18 years of age.

The staff of St. Anne’s School aims to provide a positive educational environment for the pupils in their care, and strive to ensure the individual needs of each pupil are catered for, to help them reach their full potential. We care about all aspects of our pupils’ wellbeing and development – intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and physical.”
