Mrs Elsom wanted to thank the school for their support: “A massive thank you to [head of year] Beverley Trueick and all the staff of St Anne's for incredible support given during this really difficult time for Lottie - her success couldn't have been achieved without it!

Head of School, Mr James Rouse, is delighted with the results: “In a year of big national changes it’s pleasing that the results continue to be so strong. As a city, the secondary school leaders are working ever more closely together to ensure that Southampton pupils get the best possible start, and our results contribute to that city-wide success. We are also thrilled so many year 11s from across the city are planning to come to us for sixth form and we are looking forward to welcoming them on Friday 23rd August for our sixth form enrolment day.”
