“We aim to provide opportunities to enable each student to be the very best they can be.”
Christine Leighton, Rector

Our overarching strategic goal is to ensure the long-term viability of St Andrew’s College as an innovative learning community which provides an excellent standard of balanced, independent co-education.

We are committed to providing a world class learning environment which values innovation and creativity alongside tradition and knowledge.

We seek to be known as a school where the best of the past is used as a firm foundation to guide the future; where a relentless pursuit of high performance drives our commitment to personal excellence; and clearly espoused values are visible in our daily lives.

We aspire to provide all students with the opportunity to complete their schooling:

  • having experienced personal success and excited to take to the next steps in their learning pathway;
  • confident, self-aware, compassionate and caring;
  • connected and committed to global responsibility and a better future for all.

Our Vision for Every Student

To be at the leading edge of high performance educational practice, in a community which values caring for others, tradition, and creativity, in order to provide young people with the roots and wings to flourish in an ever-changing world.
