St Andrew's School

St Andrew's School is an IAPS School for boys and girls aged 3 to 13 in Berkshire.

About the school

Set in 54 acres of beautiful woodland and playing fields close to Pangbourne in Berkshire, St Andrew’s is a co-educational day and boarding prep school for boys and girls with an adventurous spirit.

At St Andrew’s children flourish academically and outstanding results are achieved within our non-pressured learning environment. Most children join us in Nursery or Reception, gaining confidence and independence as they move up from the Pre-Prep into the Prep, with a high percentage of children awarded scholarships as they move on to a range of leading schools at 13.

Within and beyond the classroom, we discover and nurture every child’s passion. We aim to provide the very best all round education for boys and girls in the area; priding ourselves on our innovative sports provision; outstanding music and performing arts and the diverse programme of fun yet challenging activities on offer.

Children thrive in our friendly and supportive co-educational community where every child is valued as an individual. Significant emphasis is placed on pastoral care: social skills, good manners and giving children the tools to become positive contributors to society.

We are exceptionally proud of our beautiful surroundings and first class facilities. Children enjoy very active school days: whether they are climbing trees at break time or building fires at forest school, being active, ‘having a go’ and getting muddy are definitely seen as very good things at St Andrew’s!
