About Us

St. Andrew’s School has a non-selective academic entry. Priority for places is given to pupils who already have brothers or sisters at the school.

The school has a very happy, family atmosphere that can be attributed to the sensitive and sensible way in which the staff teach and care for the children. The enthusiasm for the children to be successful creates a stimulating environment that is conducive to learning. The school is proud of its traditional style of teaching and learning with an emphasis on class teaching.

The discipline in the school is based on mutual respect amongst pupils, peers and teachers. The children have clearly defined parameters of behaviour and are taught to show respect to all with whom they come into contact.

The school’s aim is to develop well-rounded, enthusiastic learners who will make a strong contribution to their senior schools both as good citizens and as pupils who are prepared to work hard in order to achieve success. The measure of the curriculum at St. Andrew’s should be that which the children take with them and continue to develop throughout their school careers.

The aim of St. Andrew’s is to provide high quality all round education for a fee that is competitive in both the independent and state sectors.

The school endeavours to provide a challenging and stimulating environment necessary for outstanding academic achievement in the local selective 11+ examinations.

The school aims to foster a caring atmosphere in which pupils and teachers are aware of and are sympathetic to the needs of others.

The school aims to encourage all pupils to become responsible individuals who can work together, co-operatively and with respect for their peers.

The school endeavours to offer a wide range of opportunities for all pupils to develop self-confidence and a sense of responsibility, so that children are well prepared for the challenges that they will face in life.

Independent schools such as St. Andrew’s have, for some years, had the advantage of monitoring the development of the National Curriculum without suffering from the effects of its immediate imposition. St. Andrew’s has been able to adapt the best procedures of traditional teaching methods and modern methods of learning.

St. Andrew’s benefits greatly from its smaller class sizes giving teachers greater flexibility in the classroom and greater opportunities to assess the needs of each child. A good teacher will constantly reassess his or her own performance by measuring the effectiveness of their teaching based on the learning and progress of the pupils.

St. Andrew’s School is proud to provide equal opportunities for all, regardless of gender, race, ethnic or cultural background and we expect and encourage all children to have full access to the curriculum. Although we are not a church school, the school meets regularly in the nearby church for Assemblies and the end of term service which are Christian in nature. Parents may request that their children be excused from the services on religious grounds.

The provision of specialist teachers gives a continuity that has been successful in subjects such as French, Art, music and PE. The school boasts an ICT suite where the pupils are taught to use the technology that will enhance their learning and communication skills.

The school has a set curriculum to which each teacher adheres, but has the flexibility to adapt to their own particular style and personality. The success of the children in the 11+ and SAT examinations reflects the school curriculum with a large percentage of children moving on to the selective grammar schools in the Medway and Kent area.
