Headmaster’s Welcome

A warm welcome to St Andrew’s – a dynamic, innovative prep school where we prepare our pupils for the fast pace and ever changing 21st century while maintaining the finest of prep school traditions.

Childhood is precious and the St Andrew’s Prep staff is committed to giving each of the children the happiest of starts in a warm and friendly environment while helping them to develop their individual strengths and characters.  

We provide a firm academic grounding across our broad curriculum and ensure that every lesson and learning opportunity stimulates, encourages and engages the children. We believe lessons learned in the classroom are as important as those learned outside – on the sports field, at beach or forest school, on the stage, on school trips, or in the boarding house.

Pastoral care, pupil wellbeing and happiness are at the heart of everything we do; and the children are at the centre of all our decision-making because, quite simply, we believe happy, healthy children thrive and achieve.

This website will give you a glimpse of the education, opportunities and positive challenges that a St Andrew’s Prep education will offer your child. Please enjoy exploring its pages and I hope it will whet your appetite for a visit during which, I’m sure, you’ll gain a real sense of the energy, enthusiasm, happiness and engagement of our children.  I’m sure too you will see why we are so proud of the school’s heritage, location, facilities and staff but, most of all, the children who define us and are the school’s heartbeat.

I very much look forward to meeting you and your children at St Andrew’s Prep.

Meet the Headmaster – TOM GREGORY

 

Tom started his career in the City of London working in Investment Banking. After ten years he followed his heart and moved into teaching, immediately finding his vocation. He has held senior roles in various schools over the last thirteen years including Vinehall and Ashfold School where he was the Deputy Head. 

St Andrew’s Prep and Eastbourne are familiar territory for Tom. As a former pupil at both St Andrew’s Prep and Eastbourne College, he knows first-hand the schools’ sense of family and community.

Joining Tom in his move will be his wife Esther and children, Maisie (11) and Herbie (8). Esther has a long standing 23-year teaching career in both senior and prep schools.
