We are nurturing creativity and curiosity in young learners to build resilient and empathetic global citizens ready for now and beyond!

Personalised Learning – Each and every child is unique and holds great potential. To realise their full potential, they require specific attention to be intellectually challenged, to think and to be supported. We deliver a quality Program of Learning centred upon meeting the needs of each student through genuine inquiry and explicit teaching.

Specialist Subjects

  • Evidence shows that participation in regular physical activity improves cognitive functioning and concentration. To ensure that every child participates in a quality PE program and has positive and worthwhile experiences, Annesley’s PE lessons are delivered by a specialist teacher.

  • Annesley has a clear focus on developing internationally-minded and aware students. As part of this focus, our students participate in regular French lessons where they take part in a program of rich language and cultural experiences.

    Annesley is committed to developing students “who can understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication.” – The IB PYP Learner Profile.

  • To enhance students’ appreciation, self-expression and academic achievement, our Arts program is designed to develop a range of valuable knowledge and skills. The Arts is an important avenue of support in a student’s development as it benefits higher order thinking skills, analysis, synthesis and evaluation, as well as critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills.

  • With a focus on innovation and creation in our Technologies program, we introduce challenges that encourage our students to design, create and review in a collaborative environment. Our Technologies program is enhanced by our purpose built Innovation Station designed to extend students skills by providing access to state of the art resources such as 3D design tools, 3D printers, remote controlled cars and drones.

  • Many opportunities are offered to our students to find their voice, grow in self confidence and express themselves through many mediums. Experiences in Music and Performing Arts have the capacity to engage, inspire and enrich our students by exciting their imagination and encouraging individuals creative and expressive potential. Mastering a musical instrument, performing on a stage or providing technical off stage support provides development for young artists on an intellectual, emotional and sensory level.

  • Our students can experience the joys of scientific discovery whilst nurturing their natural curiosity about the world around them. They develop critical and creative thinking skills and challenge themselves to identify questions and draw evidence based conclusions using scientific methods. Together we investigate the natural world and the changes made to it through human activity.
