About Us

St. Andrew’s is a large Catholic Primary School situated in the Borough of Lambeth. There are 28 different languages spoken throughout the school. Sixty percent of our pupils have EAL, a large proportion of which are at the early stages of learning English and have very low fluency. The school has close links with the parishes of English Martyrs and St Bartholomew. The catchment area is typical of most inner London schools.

A running theme through our last three Ofsted inspections has been the quality of care for the pupils where the support, pupils’ personal development and wellbeing are outstanding. Our Catholic Ethos promotes individuality and individual success within a structure that promotes team work and team building with both adults and children working together to create a whole school sense of community. From Year 1 children have the opportunity to become school councillors, eco councillors and as they move through the school take on additional responsibilities, such as school sports leaders, digital leaders and eventually prefects, house captains and key positions of responsibility such as Head Boy and Girl. It helps to raise and then maintain the level of expectation, aspiration and care which is crucial to maintaining this ethos.
