At St Andrew’s we seek to enable everyone to develop their God-given potential and a love for learning within a caring, challenging Christian environment. We aspire to be a centre of excellence working together to develop each member’s full potential. St Andrew’s expects the whole school community to be exemplary in conduct, to work hard and care for others. We aim both to learn from and be an inspiration to all, where students are proud of their school. Skills and confidence will be developed to the highest level, enabling students to achieve personal excellence, be motivated, and prepare them as good citizens.
We are embarking on a new chapter in the life of St Andrew’s. We are overcoming recent significant challenges, with a revitalised and enthused staff and SLT who are already realising rapid and sustained student progress.
