St. Andrew's is an oversubscribed school in the heart of Kettering and is part of the Peterborough Diocese Academy Trust (PDET). The school has had many incarnations over its long history; recently a 1.5 million extension has resulted in the school expanding its intake of children to just over 300. Children are at the heart of every decision we make as we strive to serve and better our community.
We are a school that believes in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. As such we want all those who become part of our school community to feel valued, happy, respected and to recognise their role in helping our school become outstanding.We believe that all children who become pupils at our school deserve the best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their potential in every area of school life – academic, social, personal, physical and spiritual. We do this by ensuring that each child understands their educational journey – where it is beginning, where it will take them and how they will get there!Within our school we work very hard to create a team of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that will support each child in reaching their potential. Visitors to the school comment on the commitment and dedication of our staff to help every child to do their best.We value the broad and balanced curriculum delivered by our staff and all thechildren are able to access not only academic, but creative and physical areas of the national Curriculum, so that they receive a good standard of education.
