Our creative and exciting curriculum encourages children to immerse themselves in their learning, think for themselves and become independent learners.
The natural world shapes our school days, classrooms are surrounded by beautiful woodland and filled with natural objects, flowers and light.
Children learn through hands-on, real-life experiences. Children are encouraged to have a go, solve problems, think creatively and respect the world around them.

Debby Hunter – Principal

Welcome to Annan School. We strive to create an inspiring and engaging environment in which everyone can develop as confident, thoughtful learners who are happy, love school and make outstanding progress.

The journey

Learning is for life and we want children to enjoy their Annan experience to the full, from the early first steps in kindergarten, right up to emerging at the end of juniors ready to take on new challenges with enthusiasm and determination.



Kindergarten is a fun and lively place, where our experienced and caring staff encourage children to develop their natural curiosity, follow their interests and develop a love of learning in a homely environment.



Children enjoy a rich learning experience which is full of exciting activities, gardening, cooking and using their own dedicated infant garden. They learn to take risks, and challenge their thinking.


7- 11 YEARS

Our junior children’s desire to find out more is inspired by trips out, and children are encouraged to fully develop their skills and interests to grow into independent learners and thinkers.

“There is a real sense of respect and care for each other because of the ethos of the school. Pupils develop strong social awareness, a sense of belonging, a positive self-image and mutual respect, in an environment where they feel confident, cared for and have the freedom to enjoy learning.”
