"There is a great atmosphere in school. The children who showed us around were so excited and were very proud of their work."(Parent)

"It was lovely to see so many children attending and enjoying their lessons. I visited all seven classes; there was a warm and positive atmosphere everywhere."(Foundation Governor)

“The school is truly Christian values led; an approach which has a consistently positive impact on pupils’ performance and well being.”(World Class Schools)

“St. Andrew’s is a place of high expectations. There is an ethos of driving improvement so that each individual makes at least good progress.”(World Class Schools)


St. Andrew's is a values-led, highly popular school and nursery in the heart of Kettering and is part of the Peterborough Diocese Academy Trust (PDET). We're proud of the way children not only make great progress in their learning, but also how we take such pride in developing our children's character and behaviour. Children are at the heart of every decision we make as we strive to serve and better our community. You will find our vision statement and child led 'virtual tour' video of the school below!

We want St Andrew’s to be a beacon of our community that inspires adults and children alike with outstanding learning and teaching. We want our school to be a place where children take responsibility for their choices and learning; developing a thirst and love of learning that will be lifelong. We want St Andrew’s to be a school ‘Where young minds grow and young hearts learn to care’ through a thoughtful and wide-ranging development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development within the Christian faith. We want our values to be our children’s virtues.
