I have recently taken up the position of Principal of St Andrew’s School and have received a warm welcome from the pupils and staff alike. I am proud to be associated with a school that has such a strong reputation in Bedford and has been providing excellent education since 1896.
Walking around St Andrew’s it is clear to me that there is a warm and homely atmosphere. The girls and boys are part of a supportive school community in which they are happy, healthy and secure.
Pupils joining St Andrew’s enter a small, friendly environment. There are small class sizes and classroom support is a key strength. I would urge parents to visit us to witness day to day school life to see what an ideal environment the school offers in which to learn, develop and grow.
We believe in individual care and attention and we encourage a friendly, positive attitude in our pupils as well as an energetic sense of purpose. The staff realise the importance of effort and personal discipline in enabling pupils to achieve their highest academic standards.
I became Principal on the 2 September 2013 and I also oversee Rushmoor School where I have been the Head Teacher for a number of years. The Governors of St Andrew’s School were delighted to announce that St Andrew’s School and Rushmoor School have chosen to work closely together for their mutual benefit. Each school will retain its own identity but this development will build on the strong reputation and history that both schools have in Bedford and the wider community.
I would be delighted to meet with you to discuss your child’s education and give you a tour of St Andrew’s School. Please contact Mrs S Heaney to arrange an appointment.
I M Daniel, BA NPQH
Head of School's Welcome
Having had the privilege to be part of the St Andrew’s School community for over eighteen years, as science teacher, parent of two daughters and Head of Senior School, I am delighted and extremely proud to be leading St Andrew’s School at this exciting time. Our new close working relationship with Rushmoor School, under the leadership of Mr I Daniel, will increase the opportunities to pursue our main aims of providing outstanding care and excellent enrichment opportunities, as well as promoting self confidence and academic success, all within an enjoyable and stimulating learning environment.
We aim to build on our recent positive Inspection Report and very good GCSE results to provide the best educational setting we possibly can for your child to learn and be prepared for the next stage of their education.
I hope that you will be inspired to visit us and see for yourself the calm, friendly and purposeful environment which continues to make life at St Andrew’s such an enriching and fulfilling experience.
I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our students and their teachers.
