In Ives’s book, The Life and Death of Anne Boleyn, he mentions that Anne was in Margaret of Austria’s court that the future Charles V was also present at Mechelen. He doubts that Charles would have paid much attention to another young maid at court.
I can imagine that they would not have shared formal education together but surely a young English woman should have been a bit more memorable than the run of the mill attendants.
Would Anne have stood out at the time or was she still in the school room rather than as a formal member of the court?
It's always bunnies.

They were both at Mechelen at the same time, both studying language, deportment, and dance. I am sure they were together within a group at some point. Anne would have appeared at court with the other students even if it was for a brief time. Due to her being English, as you say, and due to the fact that Margaret seemed to think so highly of her, I imagine that others at court, including Charles, did take note of her.
