"Pupils show consideration and respect for others. They are friendly, polite and happy in school. There is a warm, welcoming atmosphere that is conducive to learning."(Ofsted 2017)

“Students showed a clear love of learning and the ‘Growth Mindset’ culture supported resilience if they at first found concepts challenging. It was a joy to witness the thrill of pupils when they mastered difficult concepts and punched the air in excitement shouting “Yes! Yes!” (PDET)

"Teachers create motivating, attractive and welcoming classrooms that enrich pupils’ learning." (Ofsted 2017)

“Pupils enjoy their learning. Teachers know the pupils well and use exciting and imaginative activities to stimulate their learning. The curriculum is enriched by numerous additional activities.”(Ofsted 2017)

"Parents spoke to me openly and with warmth about their support for the school and how the school’s leadership has transformed their children’s attitude to learning."(PDET)

NEWSFLASH

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 as well as a link to our Twitter feed that gives visitors a taste of life at St. Andrew's!

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.
