FAQs

What is St. Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox School?

St. Andrew the Apostle is an 11-18  secondary school, established in September 2013. The school serves all students in Barnet and Enfield as well as the wider Greek Orthodox community in North London. The school is based on the Christian faith and moral principles of the Greek Orthodox Church, but open to students of all faiths and none. We aim to make the kind of curriculum which is more often available in the independent sector (a traditional core curriculum with options in Greek, Latin and Classics) available in a state-funded school. 

St Andrew the Apostle aims to:

Deliver a broad curriculum, academic excellence and exceptional progress across the ability range

Foster a spirit of kindness, tolerance and responsibility which allows each student to grow as an individual and a community member

Encourage more students to progress to university to study maths, sciences and the classical subjects

Who is the school's educational partner and what is their track record?

The school's education partner is the Russell Education Trust (RET).

RET worked with Bristol Parents Voice to open Bristol Free School in 2011. It is also the sponsor for Becket Keys CofE Free School, the largest Free School in the country; which opened in September 2012. They established two more free schools in 2013; St. Andrew the Apostle School, and Kings School in Hove.

RET is an academy sponsor approved by the Secretary of State for Education. It works in partnership with the national school improvement company, Education London (EL), and a group of outstanding partner schools, head teachers and Ofsted trained inspectors.

EL is highly respected for its support to a number of new academies and as the sole Education Services provider to the London Challenge. EL gave its private funds to set up RET and still gives a combination of pro-bono and at-cost support to RET free schools.

How many students will the school admit ?

St Andrew the Apostle admits 150 students into Year 7 each year.

Where is the School located?

Does the school employ qualified staff?

Yes.  In common with other RET sponsored schools and academies, staff are employed under the the School Staffing Regulations that apply to all other maintained schools and academies and the nationally agreed pay and conditions for teachers and school support staff including pension schemes.
