This is Us

Students from St Andrew's College TV and Film Academy made this lipdub video. The idea was pitched by student head of television Blake Morgan and widely supported by students and staff at the College. Filmed in one day, with only one or two takes for each section, almost every student in the school was involved.

From The Rector


At the beginning of the year St Andrew’s set a College-wide theme for the ‘Year of Innovation & Collaboration’.

We committed to supporting and encouraging teachers to try different things, reach out to other networks and seek alliances which would widen students’ boundaries and imagination.

At this year’s Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival, St Andrew’s College entered two student directed pieces in the regional competition: a five minute scene from Macbeth and a 15 minute scene from Henry VI, Part 1. 

Chapel Update


Last year we closed the chapter on the heartfelt story of the Memorial Chapel.

The Memorial Chapel has painstakingly been deconstructed and the area where it stood, levelled and grassed. The next phase is about rebuilding, and concept plans for the new Chapel are progressing to working drawings.
