St Andrew’s is a non selective independent school of mixed ability, mixed race, mixed creed and mixed social background, reflecting both the nature of Bedford and the position of the school within the independent educational provision of the area. The diversity of the school is one of its strengths. However, it does also mean that St. Andrew’s caters for the many different needs of the individual pupils and parents. This requires considerable flexibility, from both teachers and the system as a whole, to ensure the best educational opportunity for each one of our pupils.
Excellent Examination Results for 2017
Once again this year we have seen Year 11 pupils achieve excellent GCSE examination results. The school saw a high percentage of A* to C grades. Strong results were seen in all subjects with English, French and Spanish being particularly noteworthy. We are very proud of our students and their achievements. They worked extremely hard and ultimately had the resilience and determination required to achieve their individual best. Their results demonstrate the hard work and commitment of both our pupils and their teachers, who give so much extra time and effort. We are delighted that so many of our pupils met or exceeded their predicted grades, considering the more rigorous academic requirements this year. Special mention should be made of Molly Heywood-Muir, Sarita Whitehead, Isabelle Stevenson and Keira Barnes-Quinn for their commendable personal achievements.
