St. Anthony's School is a Catholic preparatory school in Hampstead, London, for boys aged 4 to 13.


St. Anthony's was founded in Eastbourne in 1898 by the Patton family.[1] It moved to its current location in Hampstead, London shortly after World War II. In 2010, it was taken over by the Alpha Plus Group, who installed Paul Keyte as the headmaster.


The school occupies a large house at 90 Fitzjohn's Ave in Hampstead, north London. It is part of a cluster of schools that includes Devonshire House, North Bridge House and Fitzjohn's Primary.
