As an established, co-educational school, we have close to a 50/50 split between boys and girls. There are currently 164girls and 156 boys.
What is the boy/girl ratio?
Usually there are two classes per year, although when we occasionally have a larger cohort like our
current Year 7 and 2, which have three classes.. There are approximately 18 pupils in each Prep class.
How many classes are there per year?
We are predominantly a day School with flexi-boarding from Monday – Thursday and currently have
space for 24 boarders per night. Boarding costs £45 per night or £140 per week.
Is it a boarding school or day school?
No. We know how much families value spending time with each other over the weekends, so our week finishes on a Friday afternoon, with no Saturday School.
Is there Saturday school?
We currently offer one bus route from Stoke Row Road – Checkendon – Woodcote – Cray’s Pond – Goring & Streatley. Other routes within a 30-minute radius of St Andrew’s are currently in planning.
Do you offer a bus service?
Children can join Nursery in the term that they turn three and Reception in the September after they turn four.
There are then occasional places offered in other Year Groups as and when spaces arise.
When can my child start at St Andrew's?
Yes. Our School day is designed to support working families. Breakfast club

The Pre-Prep offers daily clubs and tea club running until 6.00 pm. The Prep School offers a range of after-school activities between 5.15 pm – 6.00 pm and then supper between 6.00 pm – 6.30 pm.

In the Pre-Prep, Reception and Year 1 have a daily play session. Years 1 and 2 can do a range of clubs including street dance, cycling, swimming, rock-climbing, football, art, cooking, ballet, acrobatics and Lego.
In the Prep School, our co-curricular programme has over 50 activities and includes chess club, fencing, rock climbing, taekwondo, cookery, dance, swimming, cycling, LAMDA, table-tennis, debating, basketball and board games. The timetable changes according to demand and the season.
What co-curricular clubs are on offer?
We believe there is no single more important part of a school’s holistic ethos than the pastoral care it
provides. We recognise the worth of success in the classroom, on the games field, with art and drama or with music, but there is nothing more important than a happy child returning home each day.
The Form Tutors are the backbone of the pastoral system, offering support, encouragement and a
listening ear. There is also an extensive network of additional support provided by the Head of Juniors,
Head of Middles and Head of Seniors, PSHEE (Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education) lessons,
the Matrons, the Deputy Head (Pastoral), the Head of Pre-Prep, and the Operational Team.
St Andrew’s welcomes pupils of all faiths and none, and there are also regular services in the Chapel.
