The allure of St. Andrew's School starts as you come down the drive and your view suddenly opens out to reveal the extensive playing fields, grounds and an imposing Victorian house. Just a few minutes away from Pangbourne, this is a rural school which provides a safe haven where children can be children. The School offers boys and girls the chance to flourish academically, regardless of ability, combined with an all-round education which includes sport, art, music, drama, and activities. We place a high emphasis on pastoral care, social skills and good manners.
St. Andrew's is more than the sum of its parts. It is an indefinable combination of tradition and innovation, of individuals and community, and of environment and stewardship. This helps our pupils develop qualities such as self-confidence, intellectual curiosity and independence, teamwork, responsibility and respect. We aim to create an environment where boys and girls leave filled with a zest for learning for the rest of their lives and with the skills to be positive members of society.
A web-based prospectus is no substitute for a visit and I hope that you will come and meet our happy, busy pupils and committed, enthusiastic staff. The years between the ages of 3 and 13 are the most important and formative of a child's education; we believe you will find St. Andrew's to be a school where you will be happy to place your children during this vital period, trusting us in the knowledge that they will be nurtured and will thrive in all aspects of school life.
