I am delighted to be the new Headteacher of St Andrew the Apostle School. Our amazing school was established in 2013 as the first state-funded Greek Orthodox secondary school in Britain. We are proud of the high quality, academic opportunities we provide to our students and of our community spirit. Our ‘can do’ approach means that we enable all of our learners to take their place in this fast-changing world.
Our aim is to broaden our students’ interests and horizons in a happy environment where all staff and students are known and cared for as individuals. Behaviour and relationships are excellent, progress and achievement is first rate and our students are proud to be at our school.
Very few schools are able to offer subjects such as Latin, Classics and Greek alongside the Core EBacc curriculum. All of our specialist staff have undergone a rigorous process to win a place at our school and as dedicated experts in their field, they are passionate about their subject
Our students are always:
RESPECTFUL to each other and respect our school environment. They know that the staff are here to care and look after them and will make decisions which are fair, compassionate and in the best interest of our school community.
RESPONSIBLE. They are honest and say sorry if they have done something wrong. In our school community, we understand that forgiveness underpins our Christian faith. We trust each other and rely on each other to uphold the mission of our school.
- RESILIENT. Our school motto is ‘Ever to Excel.’ Our students always try their best and never give up knowing that they will be nurtured and supported to achieve their ambitions.
We continue to achieve all this in our existing building and we know that we will be able to support our students even more in our brand new, specially designed, state-of-the-art new building. Building work commences in the summer term of this academic year and we expect to be in our new building in the summer term of 2023.
Whether you are from the Greek Orthodox Community, from a different faith or none, we would be pleased to hear from you and you can be sure of a warm welcome.
