"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other." - John F. Kennedy


At St Anne’s, we believe that leaders are people who have had the chance to grow and build their leadership abilities. That’s why our leadership programme is carefully designed to give all of our girls, from Grade 8 to Grade 12, the opportunity to play leadership roles at St Anne’s.

Leadership development is an integral part of our curriculum and our vision to nurture the 21st Century St Anne’s Old Girl. The way we develop our leaders complements and is driven by our values – to reflect, embrace and reach out.


Every St Anne’s girl is expected to show self-leadership, taking responsibility for her individual programme and appreciating the importance of self-discipline and independent learning. She understands her strengths and preferred learning style, and her commitment to school responsibilities sits comfortably with a balanced and healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and fun.

Leadership Opportunities For All Girls
All grades and classes are represented at College Forum - a consultative body of girls (chosen by their peers) that meets twice a term to participate in important discussions about a variety of topics. The Catering Committee meets regularly with the contracted catering company to discuss menus and suggestions offered by the girls – an important discussion in a boarding school where meals matter! Sports Captains and Vice-Captains Peer Counsellors Social Responsibility Co-ordinators Monitors in the Media Centre, ICT Centre and the Theatre Social Functions Committee Girls who embrace the spiritual life at St Anne's can serve on the Student Christian Association (SCA) Committee or as Sacristans.


By Grade 12, our girls have been equipped with the necessary skills to take on enhanced leadership roles in the community. All Grade 12 girls are mentors and play an important role on their respective house’s Management Committee. The Head and Deputy Head of the College, Heads of Houses, and the other Portfolio Heads are elected democratically.

We expect and encourage all Grade 12 girls to help with the effective running of the school and its overall leadership. When they leave St Anne’s, our girls take these skills with them and are confident and well prepared for the future.
