As a very proud Principal of this nobel institution, with a well-respected history of providing exceptional educational outcomes and opportunities for a diverse set of students, I warmly welcome you to the website of the Anchovy High School.

The purpose of this webpage is to provide parents, students, and our school community with easy access to a wealth of information on our Anchovy High School programmes, policies, and activities.
Though this school year is projected to be different from any other, together we will continue our tradition of providing a career focused education for our students as well as quality service to our parents and other stakeholders.

You can find up-to-date events, classroom photographs, and additional information, so I encourage you to visit it as often as possible.
We have a vision that surpasses that of an eagle. We remain resolute in effectively preparing students to achieve excellence in academic, vocational and artistic pursuits in a nurturing environment.
