Welcome to STA in 2024!

This is a dedicated section for our year 6 students and their families. We hope you find it useful as we move towards September 2024. We would also encourage you to join our New Starters Facebook group where you will be able to ask questions and meet some other soon-to-be St Andrew's members. Click here to access St Andrew's: New starters group - 2024.

The first step of joining St Andrew's family is to head over to our Year 6 Transition Website by CLICKING HERE.  Please go to the ‘Welcome Pack’ tab and complete the ‘New Starters Data Collection’ form.

Starting secondary school may seem like a daunting and an overwhelming experience but we have a number of events planned to help ease students into life at St Andrew’s. This will commence with a Welcome & Information evening, held on the evening of Wednesday 13th March. Here you will get to meet myself, as well as some other key members of the School Leadership Team. On this evening you will also receive further information to support you through the transition process, refreshments will be available from 5:30pm and the evening will begin at 6pm.
