St. Anselm's Catholic School is a co-educational (11-18) Catholic comprehensive school, founded in 1964 by the Archdiocese of Southwark. It occupies a rural site on the fringes of Canterbury with extensive playing fields, bordered by orchards and farmland. The school currently has 1,080 students, of whom 150 are in the Sixth Form. The Headteacher is Mr Mike Walters. St. Anselm's is a designated Specialist Science College, an honour designated in September 2004.
The school is named after the Philosopher & Archbishop of Canterbury, St Anselm (1033-1109). The main building of the school, named after Sir Thomas More, is the highest point in Canterbury. Each building is named after a local saint, for instance Dunstan, Edmund and Augustine, and a block is named after the famous Archbishop and martyr, Becket.
