A warm welcome to St Andrew’s – a dynamic, innovative prep school where we prepare our pupils for the fast pace and ever changing 21st century while maintaining the finest of prep school traditions.

Childhood is precious and the St Andrew’s Prep staff is committed to giving each of the children the happiest of starts in a warm and friendly environment while helping them to develop their individual strengths and characters.

We provide a firm academic grounding across our broad curriculum and ensure that every lesson and learning opportunity stimulates, encourages and engages the children. We believe lessons learned in the classroom are as important as those learned outside – on the sports field, at beach or forest school, on the stage, on school trips, or in the boarding house.

Pastoral care, pupil wellbeing and happiness are at the heart of everything we do; and the children are at the centre of all our decision-making because, quite simply, we believe happy, healthy children thrive and achieve.

This website will give you a glimpse of the education, opportunities and positive challenges that a St Andrew’s Prep education will offer your child. Please enjoy exploring its pages and I hope it will whet your appetite for a visit during which, I’m sure, you’ll gain a real sense of the energy, enthusiasm, happiness and engagement of our children. I’m sure too you will see why we are so proud of the school’s heritage, location, facilities and staff but, most of all, the children who define us and are the school’s heartbeat.

I very much look forward to meeting you and your children at St Andrew’s Prep.

      I have children with different needs across the academic, sporting, and musical curriculum. St Andrew’s Prep has met all these needs from behavioural issues to nurturing academic talent. While my husband and I are busy working, I am also impressed with how much we get back if we participate in...

      Our son started his life at St Andrew’s at 8 months old when he joined the wonderful nursery. Over the last 5 years I have watched him bloom under the loving kind attention of all the staff at the school. We truly feel the school is a part of our family and it’s a wonderful feeling to know we have...
