St Ann's did not operate as a reformatory and was not licensed under the Industrial and Reformatory Schools Act of 1865. The Industrial School taught young girls the art of dressmaking, embroidery and lace-making. The girls' work was sold and the income went towards running the institution, which was required to be self-sufficient. Several girls training to be teachers also resided at the school.
