St Anthony’s is a ‘Foundation Special School’ and a member of the Kent Special Educational Needs Trust (Ksent). Our aim is to deliver ‘Choice’, ‘Opportunity’, ‘Progress’, and ‘Equality’ for all of our pupils and so enable them to fulfil their current and future needs and aspirations.

As a school we currently cater for 96 pupils with Educational Health Care Plans who have specific behavioural and learning needs, such as SEMH, ASD, FAS and DAMP.

Although many of our students come from the Thanet, Herne Bay, Whitstable and Canterbury areas the school also attracts pupils from across the whole of East Kent.

We have high expectations for all of our students and work hard to develop their social and emotional skills, in addition to catering for their educational needs. Our broad and flexible curriculum offers a relevant and engaging programme designed to provide our students with opportunities to be successful in their educational achievements, as well as life in general.

The staff at St Anthony’s have extensive experience in working with pupils who have a range of barriers to learning and have been successful in assisting them to achieve their full potential.

We hope you find our website useful.
