Welcome to St Andrew the Apostle School

Founding Headteacher, Robert AhearnAs the founding Headteacher of St Andrew the Apostle School I am delighted to welcome you to our school.  

St Andrew the Apostle is the first state secondary school in the country to be supported by the Greek Orthodox Church and our sponsor the Russell Education Trust. We serve 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, and welcomes students of all faiths and none. The school has been in the spotlight, both locally and nationally, since we opened in September 2013 with our first cohort of year 7 students.

I am also delighted that St Andrew the Apostle has been judged outstanding by Ofsted during its recent inspection. This glowing report reflects everything that students, teachers, parents, RET and the Church have worked and prayed for. HMI's judgement of St Andrew has made me very proud indeed and very grateful for God's many blessings on our school community.

I believe that the quality of teaching and learning is the foundation of an excellent school. Working with an experienced education trust, we have been able to appoint a highly motivated and carefully selected staff team. Every member has proven to be exceptionally able and, as a result, loved and respected by students. They have set the standard for the future of the school, and I am confident they, along with newly recruited teachers due to start in September, will continue to nurture the Christian ethos of the school and to work with our committed parents to realise each student’s academic, social, spiritual and cultural potential.

Our curriculum, in common with other RET schools, places an emphasis on excellence in English, mathematics and science, but in our case also includes Classics and Latin. We support students to not only make outstanding progress across the curriculum but also expect them to participate in a wide range of after school clubs such as sports, debating, dance and the French spelling bee. Year 7 sports teams are already highly successful in local inter-school competitions.

Students here are happy, mature and hard-working; and I am always delighted to show parents around St Andrew the Apostle, to judge for themselves.
