St Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox School opened in September 2013 as the first Greek Orthodox secondary school in the country. It was developed from the beliefs, vision and commitment of a wide group of parents, teachers, business people and intellectuals in the Greek Orthodox community and the Church itself. Our first two sets of GCSE results (2018 & 2019) were strong, with Progress 8 scores above average.


Our school is part of the academy sponsor, the Russell Education Trust (RET) and was established as a partnership between RET, the Greek Orthodox Church and the Classical Education Trust. RET is a specialist education sponsor and has five secondary schools which work together to share and promote best practice. Our schools and teachers benefit from RET’s expert professional development service.

• Pupils’ outcomes in the GCSE exams in 2018 were strong. Disadvantaged pupils achieved particularly well. 

• Students said that there was a ‘family atmosphere’ in the school and that there is a warmth in the relationships between students.
