About Us

Anglo European School is a distinctive, comprehensive school which seeks to develop ambitious, resilient and principled young people through inter-cultural understanding and a broad balanced, inclusive curriculum enriched by a strong international dimension informed by the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate. 

It has pioneered a unique approach to global education based on breadth of study, 8 taught languages, an extensive visits and exchanges programme and a global Citizenship education which provides students with the necessary linguistic, creative and social skills to move confidently beyond the boundaries of their own communities as they prepare for their future careers in a global society.

Children join us from all over the world to develop an international community in the local village of Ingatestone, affectionately known as ‘the Anglo Family’. A culture of high academic standards rooted in traditional values and a modern internationalist outlook underpin the school’s success. This is a relaxed, friendly but purposeful school; a school which is confident in its ambition and passionate about its mission.

We want our young people to be active citizens who are internationally-minded and life-long learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.  Our Learner Profile identifies the qualities we seek to develop in all our students:
knowledgeable, enterprising, inquisitive, critical, articulate, principled, open-minded, kind, courageous, healthy, reflective and creative.

We are proud of our highly experienced, qualified and committed staff. We continue to work collaboratively to ensure we maintain the highest standards of teaching and learning and train new entrants to the profession. Examination performance is consistently above the national averages at GCSE  and our outstanding Sixth Form continues to exceed world averages and is Ofsted “outstanding”.

Leaders and staff work tirelessly to maintain high expectations in a safe, calm and purposeful environment.  Students have highly positive attitudes to learning and a commitment to an ambitious education which is recognised in our excellent destination outcomes.  

Our outstanding provision for students’ wellbeing and  pastoral care is critical to our success.  A significant team of year leaders, pastoral managers, medical support officers, student intervention managers, attendance officer and SEND team all work collaboratively to support the needs of all students, but particularly those who are most vulnerable.  

Welcome to our Anglo Family.
