  • Seniors spring to the end of term with their fantastic formal dinner

    Last Thursday, our Year 7 and 8 put on their glad rags and dressed to impress for their end of term formal dinner. Thanks to the interior design skills of our parents, our Senior Dining Room was transformed into a stunning venue that would rival any Spring wedding. Starting with mocktails on the South Terrace, our excited pupils then warmed up inside over a delicious three course meal, courtesy of our talented inhouse catering team. After a sumptuous dinner, Fred and Bella, our Head Boy and Head Girl, thanked the St Andrew's community and teachers, and delivered an inspirational speech about making the best of opportunities and life lessons. Party games were enjoyed by all, and then it was a mad dash to the Old Hall to bust some moves to an eclectic array of dance tracks courtesy of resident DJ, Billy. Head of Seniors, James Fearn, said: "Our Senior pupils had a wonderful evening to celebrate, and be congratulated on the superb leadership they show around school every day. An enormous thank you to the Year 7 and 8 parents who decorated the SDR in such style". Additional special thanks go to James Fearn and Sophie Hearn for organising the event, and to Johnnie Wrennall for taking such an incredible selection of photos. It was, without doubt, an evening to remember, and one our Year 7 and 8 will undoubtedly treasure for years.

  • St Andrew's annual Art Exhibition

    Our Art Exhibition is another eagerly anticipated annual event, showcasing the exceptional creative talent of every pupil at St Andrew's. The mezzanine floor of our Sports Centre resembled a hip Hoxton art gallery for four days, starting this Tuesday evening with a private viewing of our Art Scholars and Extension Group pupils' work. From then on in, parents, pupils and staff dropped in at their leisure to peruse the dazzling array of paintings, portfolios, sculptures and artistic collaborations, and what a collection it was. Overseen by our equally talented Head of Art, Tim Hay, children were tasked with exhibiting an art piece on one of three thought-provoking topics - Science, Weather or Wild. Taking a whopping eight hours to set up the exhibition, the objective is for every pupil from Nursery to Year 8 to submit at least one piece of work. Our pupils had the opportunity to work on their pieces in art lessons, while some also invested time beavering away at home.  As there was no limit on how many entries each pupil could submit, some went to town and made significant contributions. Art is extremely popular at St. Andrews, with well-attended breaktime clubs and a high number of pupils applying for art scholarships to Abingdon, Bradfield College, Pangbourne College and Shiplake each year. Tim Hay said: "I am so proud of our pupils, and how hard they have worked to produce such outstanding pieces of artwork. Every year, they set the bar even higher and rise to the challenge of new and exciting subject matters. Congratulations to everyone, and thank you to our parents and my colleagues for their support."

  • Visiting Author Stephen Davies and World Book Week

    On Tuesday, as part of World Book Week, we welcomed Stephen Davies as our visiting author. Stephen is a successful children’s author who began his writing career in Berkina Faso, West Africa, where he lived for 14 Years. Writing all his adult life, Stephen's adventure stories include Don’t Spill the Milk, Hilda and the Hidden People (Netflix tie-in), The Ancient Egypt Sleepover, Myths, Mummies and Magic in Ancient Egypt, Survivor, Titanic and Chessboxer. Stephen enthusiastically talked to our Prep School in their assembly and delivered a series of engaging and inspiring workshops to all the children from Years 1 - 8 throughout the day. He discussed the process of writing, what inspires him to write and, after giving the children the opportunity to produce their own writing, gave them encouraging and constructive feedback. He also kindly spent time signing books in our library. Sophie Hearn, Head of English writes: "Having a children’s author visit us at school this week has added to the magic of World Book Week at St Andrew’s. The children were spellbound as he told of his travels and adventures across the globe; the creative writing pieces they all produced after his workshops on Ancient Egypt, RMS Titanic and thriller-writing were nothing short of brilliant." The celebration of reading continued throughout World Book Day when pupils and staff dressed as their favourite book characters. The day began with a Mega Read in our Sports Hall where our Pre-Prep children buddied up with our Prep pupils and read together. Huge thanks to Alex Forbes of Fourbears Books who enabled children to swap their World Book Day tokens for free books – his tables were definitely bare by the end of Break. The Library was mobbed by children wanting to borrow books and pupils clustered in little groups throughout the day to chat about their costumes, their characters and imaginary worlds far away from Berkshire. An enormous thank you to Sophie Hearn for organising such a spectacular day, and to Johnnie Wrennall for his support and excellent photos. See the short film below talking to children about their costumes and favourite books.
