At St Andrew’s, the whole school family understands that the Benchmarks are a real foundation on which we can build for the present and in so doing cater for the future. These Benchmarks influence the decisions we make in all that is undertaken as a school family, for the welfare and benefit of all members.
Our Benchmarks echo the school’s Mission.
