Talent Show 2019
Our annual Talent Show took place at The Chickenshed Theatre in Southgate on Friday 5th April. The event was organised by the Performing Arts Department and showcases the amazing talent of students within our school. Open to all students, a vast array of performers, ranging from street dance to a tribute to rock band Queen, entertained the sold out crowd at The Chickenshed Theatre.
The judges for the show were renowned musician Pavlos Doukanaris, vocalist Mandy LeCointe and Mario Lazari.
The winning act was bouzouki duo Christian Germanou and Nickolas Papaphotis, who entertained the crowd with their unique chemistry and rhythm on stage. Runners up were Twyla Ng and Grace Chapman, both with amazing vocal performances. A big well done to all students who participated in the show and a thank you to our amazing 6th formers who worked behind the scenes to ensure the event was a success.

GCSE Results 2018
ST ANDREW THE APOSTLE CELEBRATES EXCEPTIONAL GCSE RESULTS
St Andrew the Apostle School is celebrating an exceptional first set of GCSE results. 52% of all Year 11 students achieved the gold standard EBACC measure (a good grade in English, maths, science, language, history/geography), which places St Andrew in the top 5% of schools in the country. Our English results were equally outstanding with 88% achieving a grade 4 or higher in English Language and 72% achieving a grade 5 or higher. 75% of students achieved a good grade in science with more than a quarter of these grades at 9-7. Students achieved particularly well at the very top of the ability range, with 10% of students getting top grades (9-7) across the board. Four students achieved AS Level in Year 11. We are particularly proud of our top achiever, Taniya Jamil, who secured 9 top grade 9s and 1 grade 8. Some other exceptional performers were:
Guy Coker:3 grade 9s, 4 grade 8s, 1 A and 1 B
Marianna Christodoulou:4 grade 9s, 3 grade 8s, 1 grade 7, 1 A* and 1 B
Niamh Dermody:1 grade 9, 5 grade 8s, 1 grade 7, 1 grade 6 and 1 B
The school’s Headteacher, Mr Robert Ahearn, commented on the results:“I am absolutely thrilled with this year’s outstanding GCSE results. Our founding cohort have done us proud and I share in their delight as they celebrate their successes today. There were individual successes at all ability levels and behind every set of examination results there is a personal story of hard work, commitment and perseverance. These outcomes are a result of the hard work of the students, the support of their family and friends and the dedication of the staff at the school.
We are delighted that so many of our students are joining us for 6th Form; teachers and students will be working towards equally exceptional ‘A’ level results in 2020."
RET CEO said, “St Andrew the Apostle has been outstanding since it opened, so these GCSE results are excellent but not surprising. Students and staff are to be warmly congratulated on their achievements; as are local parents and the wider community who have so consistently supported the school.”
