Pupils and teacher outside

Welcome to the St Andrew the Apostle School. We are delighted that you have chosen our school and are looking forward to welcoming you to our ‘family’. 

Our aim at St Andrew the Apostle School is to give you the opportunity to reach your full academic and personal potential within a caring, Christian environment. At St Andrew the Apostle you will be known and valued.

Transition Day

Every year students in Year 6 have the opportunity to visit their secondary school before the end of the summer term. This year the borough-wide transition day is on Thursday 4 July 2024. On this day, we will welcome all the Year 6 students who have chosen us to our school and the day will be an important opportunity for students to begin the settling-in process. Throughout the day, students will meet with their form group, experience a range of typical lessons, and begin to build new friendships before September. Parents will also be invited to the school to meet those who will be supporting their child in September.

Making the transition from primary school to secondary school is an important step in every child’s life.

We will be contacting all our primary feeder schools to get information about those who will be joining us.

Year 6 students who are joining us will have the chance to visit our school for masterclasses in the summer term and we also invite Year 5 students who are thinking of joining us in the summer term as well so that they can experience taster lessons.
