Together we represent a broad spectrum of occupations and bring invaluable community experience and expertise to the leadership of St Andrew’s.

The Governors of St Andrew’s are rightly proud of the school and the high quality of education that it offers to the community.

Each governor is assigned to work with one of the teaching teams and makes visits as part of a monitoring and evaluation process. The School Development Plan is reviewed regularly and targets set to ensure that our priorities are clear.
