The College

St. Anselm’s College is a Roman Catholic Grammar School for boys in the Diocese of Shrewsbury. The College was founded in 1933, by the Congregation of Christian Brothers, to provide Catholic Education for the boys in the area. From 1944 to1975, it operated as a Direct Grant Grammar School. When Direct Grant was phased out, the College became Independent and remained so until 1995, when the College became the first school in the country to opt back into the maintained sector as a Grant Maintained School. From September 1999 the College was Voluntary Aided and became an Academy in June 2011. It remains under the Trusteeship of the Christian Brothers. The College is heavily oversubscribed with 5 Form entry, and 989 on roll. Currently 201 boys in the 6th Form.

The College was inspected by Ofsted in July 2019 and judged to be “Good” in all areas. They declared that “Teaching is especially strong in English, Art and PE”.
The College was also inspected by Shrewsbury Diocesan Inspectors in March 2019 and judged to be “a good Catholic Grammar School with outstanding features.”

The Headmaster enjoys the support of a highly committed, hard-working, yet cheerful, staff. Most colleagues put time in above and beyond any minimum requirement and the confines of their job descriptions. This has the effect of creating a positive and rewarding environment in which to work.
