Welcome to Our School


I am delighted to introduce myself to you as Principal of St. Anne’s National School in Shankill. I am thrilled to lead this dedicated, diverse and talented school community. We have over 500 fantastic children enrolled and 45 wonderful members of staff.

We are committed to a spirit of inclusion, equality and partnership in education where each child and adult member of the school community is valued and treated with dignity and respect. Since 1961, we have built a strong reputation as a welcoming, successful, child-centred school which seeks to develop the individual talents of our children. We aim to help each child develop to the best of their abilities. We believe that children learn best when there are strong links between school and home.

Our vision is to encourage children to develop their love of learning in a happy, caring, inspiring school environment – happy children learn best!
