« One of the most important decisions you will ever have to make is where to send your child to school. The early years of a child’s development shape not only future academic success but also character. Your child’s first school, therefore, is something which should be chosen with great care. »
Welcome to Agnes School, a school with a catholic ethos for boys and girls aged 2-11. Founded on the belief that parents are the first educators of their children, our goal is to help parents raise their children to become considerate young men and women who lead their lives guided by noble christian principles.
Our tutorial system, tailored to each child, ensures that alongside the pursuit of academic excellence, pupils are encouraged to develop good habits such resilience, cheerfulness, generosity and responsibility. They are also encouraged to take an active part in our rich and varied extra-curricular programme.
Please join us at our next information session for an in-depth explanation of our project, where you can meet our pupils and see our wonderful school in action. I would be delighted to discuss with you how we work and what we can do for your child.
Mr Marco Signore
Agnes School asbl
Agnes School was founded by a group of catholic parents and educators. It is a non-profit organisation.
Agnes School was founded in 2002 by a group of catholic parents and educators to establish schools and other means of supporting families whose deepest desire is that their children grow into men and women of integrity committed to living their whole lives by christian principles; men and women who, amongst the exhilarating, and challenging opportunities that the new Millennium presents, are resolved to be the faithful spouses, exemplary citizens and inspirational leaders that our society needs.
The founders believe that parents should be at the heart of the education of their children, both academic and personal, and that schools – and other educators – should be of service to the family in trying to achieve this goal.
Agnes School is governed by a Board of Directors.
They meet regularly to discuss all aspects of school life, and the meetings are also attended by the head teacher and bursar.
The governors meet regularly to discuss all aspects of school life, and the meetings are also attended by the director.
