Welcome to the St Andrews School website.
Founded in 1896 St Andrew’s is a small Independent School with a co-educational Nursery and Junior School and a girls’ Senior School. St Andrew’s provides an education for the whole child, combining traditional values with the best of current practice.
St Andrew’s has flourished by providing a nurturing environment in which each child's talents are found and encouraged. Each pupil’s individuality is highly valued, fostered and developed. Pastoral care is outstanding.
Small classes are the key to success for each girl or boy in developing new skills and achieving her or his full potential. Pupils are expected to work hard, but we also know the value of fun and relaxation and pupils have many opportunities to take part in a wide range of extra activities.
St Andrew’s is a small school with high expectations and big ambitions for your child. We look forward to welcoming you to the school very soon.
In line with Charity Commission requirements we offer bursaries and scholarships at both St Andrews and Rushmoor. New applications are welcome at both schools for the next academic year. Bursaries are means-tested, whilst scholarships are awarded for sports/arts/academic.
St Andrew’s was established in 1896 and has a strong reputation within Bedfordshire for providing excellent education and care for its pupils.

Supporting the school
The PTFA exists as the social and fund-raising arm of the school's activities. We organise different social events throughout the year, trying to involve as many children and parents as possible in events such as fetes, feature evenings, sporting events etc. In the spring term of 2016 the decision was made to formally merge the St Andrew's and Rushmoor PTFA's into one group who have responsibility for organising joint and separate events for the schools partnership.
We are a group of volunteers looking to be innovative and find new ways to support the children at both schools.
Please contact the school office staff if you are interested in joining the committee or would like to help in one of our events. Your support would be very welcome.
