Key Stage 3
At St. Andrew’s we understand the importance of a smooth and supportive transition from primary to secondary school. We place great value on ensuring all students joining our school community feel happy and safe, and that this exciting milestone in their educational journey sets them on the right course to fulfil and exceed their potential. During their first year at St. Andrew’s, students will be closely monitored and supported by the Director of Year 7 Transition, a new addition to our Senior Team. This position recognises our commitment to ensuring your child has the best possible start to their secondary school experience.
Key Stage 3 is a crucial period in your child’s education. Not only does it lay the foundations in their preparation for Key Stage 4, it allows them to develop into curious, resilient and proactive members of both the school and local communities. St. Andrew’s has an absolute commitment to ensuring your child becomes an active and conscientious member of society, driven by our Christian ethos.
As a school we understand the value of enriching the curriculum, and when your son or daughter joins St Andrew’s they will be exposed to a thriving programme of after-school activities and clubs, and a new range of off-site trips, available to all. When students reach the end of Key Stage 3 they will celebrate this milestone with their Graduation Ceremony, an occasion to acknowledge their achievements and aspirations as they move towards the next stage of their education.
