Academic ethos focuses on encouraging the students to utilise their talents,and develop their intellectual and creative interests so that they remain interesting and interested young men for the rest of their professional and personal lives. The school’s academic environment is such that it inculcates the students to develop their knowledge and interest in these areas.

Students at St Anthony’s School are expected to be independent thinkers, develop first class critical reading, writing and analysis skills, learn to understand the value of knowledge in all areas of the curriculum and be self-motivated and self-driven through a genuine love of the subject and not only by intrinsic rewards. The initiative to understand each other’s cultural backgrounds and religions is a crucial aspect of academic and wider life at this esteemed institution.
