History of St. Anne's

History of St. Anne’s

Established in 1925, St Anne’s has a rich history going back to the early 1900’s. Originally a family residence, the house was adapted to a recuperation hospital and pharmacy during the Great War.

In 1925 the house was sympathetically and comprehensively adapted to become a school and now offers a warm, welcoming and homely atmosphere.
